This newly revised and expanded edition of "The Bill of Rights in Modern America" captures the noisy and potentially defining national debate about the nature and extent of our individual rights. Free speech, the separation of church and state, public safety and gun control, property rights, the rights of criminals and victims, the limits of law enforcement, the death penalty, affirmative action, the right to privacy, abortion, states' rights - the Bill of Rights has been evoked as the legal basis for every one of these issues. Twelve distinguished legal scholars discuss the history and the current debates on these and other important rights issues in a book that is certain to stimulate thoughtful discussion among all citizens.
