Out of Print, we have only 1 remaining in inventory Discussing Supreme Court decisions regarding obscenity, Richard F. Hixson highlights the views of Justices William J. Brennan and John Paul Stevens, borrows from the pioneer decisions of Judge Learned Hand, and consults the work of contemporary First Amendment scholars; finally, though, he relies not on public debate or political machinations but on the justices¿ own published opinions, which are, as he says, "the most tantalizing documents of all." Hixson proceeds chronologically through eleven chapters, with each chapter featuring a specific aspect of the constitutional problem and the approach or solution espoused by a particular justice. Through his case-by-case analysis of the many Supreme Court obscenity rulings, Hixson relates each decision to the temper of the times. In this investigation of the Supreme Court¿s dealings with obscenity, Hixson asks¿and answers in detail¿a series of pertinent questions. Do Congressional politics and public opinion prejudice the Court¿s ability to interpret the Constitution fairly? Must adults be treated the same as children? What are the limits, if any, of "content restriction" on obscene materials? How much "expressive activity" is, or should be, protected by the First Amendment? Does pornography discriminate against women? How protective of the individual can the Supreme Court be and, at the same time, allow as many voices as possible to be heard?.

Acerca de


"In the end, Justice John Marshall Harlan was probably right when he concluded, in a letter to a friend just months before his death in 1971, that the obscenity problem [is] almost intractable, and that its ultimate solution must be found in a renaissance of societal values. But nothing ever comes to an end at the U.S. Supreme Court, least of all societal values that touch upon obscenity and pornography." Richard F. Hixson, from the Preface"
