In this issue we feature edited versions of many of the papers given at the symposium the journal sponsored in February, 1989, entitled "Language, Law, and Compulsion." We asked panelists to examine not only the most obvious instances of compelled speech, such as eliciting a confession, but also the ways in which language is used to constitute narratives that shape individual and national life.
