The Fight for Free Speech

We're thrilled to announce that early next year we'll be publishing Ian Rosenberg's The Fight for Free Speech: Ten Cases That Define Our First Amendment Freedoms. This concise book will offer a user’s guide to understanding contemporary free speech issues. Each chapter focuses on a free speech question—from student walkouts for gun safety to Samantha Bee’s expletives, from Nazis marching in Charlottesville to the muting of adult film star Stormy Daniels—and then identifies, unpacks, and explains the key Supreme Court case that provides the answers. Together these fascinating stories create a practical framework for understanding where our free speech protections originated and how they can develop in the future. https://bit.ly/2Vs16Zu

"Antler is a deservedly esteemed historian, a complex thinker, a compelling storyteller, and a feminist with a flair, who, once again, has expanded the terrain of women's history and the history of feminism, especially second-wave feminism, American-Jewish history, the history of radicalism, the Left, histories of anti-Semitism, and multiculturalism. Jewish Radical Feminism transforms our understandings of late twentieth-century social activism and offers a powerful corrective to narrow notions of identity feminism and Judaism." -Journal of American History
