This book is a collection of essays on free speech issues and attitudes, compiled by the Commission on Freedom of Speech of the Speech Communication Association. Four articles focus on freedom of speech in classroom situations as follows: a philosophic view of teaching free speech, effects of a course on free speech on student attitudes, historical essentials of teaching free speech, and two opposing views on teacher attitudes on free speech in the communications classroom. Subjects of other essays are: the judicial process in relation to freedom of speech; freedom of speech in ancient Athens; a case in which the American Civil Liberties Union sought limitations on freedom of speech; the opposing philosophies of Thomas Hobbes and John Stuart Mill; the rhetoric of intimidation in Indiana during World War I; and Supreme Court decisions relating to the First Amendment during its 1971-1972 term. The book ends with an extensive bibliography of articles, books, and court decisions relating to freedom of speech and published between July 1971 and June 1972. (RN)
