 About the Book 

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees a free press and free speech. In Son of Sam Case: Simon & Schuster Inc. v. Members of New York State Crime Victims Board, award-winning author Susan Dudley Gold explores the issues involved when the state of New York attempted to override the free speech rights of criminals in an effort to compensate their victims. The case and its ramifications, described in a clear and entertaining narrative, demonstrate the sanctity of the First Amendment, even when protecting the rights of wrongdoers, and how government interference with free speech affects all citizens.
