"Dr. Meiklejohn, in a book which greatly needed writing, hasthought through anew the foundations and structure of ourtheory of free speech...he rejects all compromise. Hereexamines the fundamental principles of Justice Holmes'theory of free speech and finds it wanting because, as heviews it, under the Holmes doctrine, speech is not freeenough. In these few pages, Holmes meets an adversaryworthy of him...Meiklejohn, in his own way, writes a proseas piercing as Holmes and as a foremost American philosopherthe reach of his culture is as great...this is the mostdangerous assault which the Holmes position has ever borne."John P. Frank, Texas Law Review, 27:405-412.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
