THE PROGENY : Justice Williams J. Brennan's Fight to Preserve the Legacy of the New York Times V. Sullivan
KF8745.B68 L44 2014
By Levine, Lee


New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, credited with defining the central meaning of the First Amendment, has protected the freedom of expression for the past 50 years. This compelling work of historical non-fiction focuses on the progeny of that decision, examining how Justice Brennan nurtured and developed the constitutional law of defamation and related claims.



WALKING PREY : How America's Youth Are Vulnerable to Sex Slavery
HQ144 .S657 2014
By Smith, Holly Austin


Today, two cultural forces are converging to make America's youth easy targets for sex traffickers. Younger and younger girls are engaging in adult sexual attitudes and practices, and the pressure to conform means thousands have little self-worth and are vulnerable to exploitation. At the same time, thanks to social media, texting, and chatting services, predators are able to ferret out their victims more easily than ever before.



THE CIVIC CONSTITUTION : Civic Visions and Struggles in the Path toward Constitutional Democracy
KF4541 .B33 2014
By Beaumont, Elizabeth


How have generations of Americans debated and shaped the constitutional meanings of liberty, equality, justice, and "We, the people"? What roles have engaged citizens, civic groups, and social movements played in effecting transformative constitutional change? These questions are at the heart of this compelling study. Traveling across the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century, we see the constitutional visions and struggles of the broad swath of revolutionaries who motivated the Declaration of Independence and the first state constitutions; the streams of critics and antifederalists who influenced the national Constitution and Bill of Rights; the abolitionists who paved the way for the Reconstruction Amendments; and the suffragists whose battles provoked the Nineteenth Amendment.


THE RISE AND DECLINE OF AMERICAN RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
KF4783 .S645 2014
By Smith, Steven D.


Familiar accounts of religious freedom in the United States often tell a story of visionary founders who broke from the centuries-old patterns of Christendom to establish a political arrangement committed to secular and religiously neutral government. These novel commitments were supposedly embodied in the religion clauses of the First Amendment. But this story is largely a fairytale, Steven Smith says in this incisive examination of a much-mythologized subject. He makes the case that the American achievement was not a rejection of Christian commitments but a retrieval of classic Christian ideals of freedom of the church and freedom of conscience.
