Book Review: Fundamental Liberties of a Free People: Religion, Speech, Press, and Assembly & Freedom, Virtue and the First Amendment, 4 HOW. L.J. 143 (1958)
Professor Konvitz, without questioning the underlying assumptions of the
liberal tradition, has written a careful and somewhat critical summary of
existing Supreme Court law. Professor Berns mounts an all-out assault
upon the liberal position. Both 'books are welcome and, each in its own
way, useful. Neither, I think, makes a really significant or lasting contribution
to the very troublesome problems with which they deal.
