Editorial Reviews

"Carol E. Jenson's book deals with an important subject. The focus of the study is the treatment (and the abuse) of First Amendment freedom-of-expression guarantees by state legislatures and courts, and the federal judiciary, particularly the U.S. Supreme Court. ... Tracing the legislative and judicial record of these [security] statutes, Jenson sets out a stimulating thesis. She argues that the laws and their construction by courts, taken together, represent a network of control' that has been (and may be again) tightened' to choke off a wide range of politically sensitive forms of speech and action. ... This is the first study of the interaction between federal and state jurisdictions that is book length."-American Historical Review
