Judging Free Speech contains nine original essays by political scientists and law professors, each providing a comprehensive, yet concise and accessible overview of the free speech jurisprudence of a United States Supreme Court Justice. Analyzing the first amendment expressive freedom opinions of justices from the nineteen twenties through the twenty-first century, the essays go beyond simply identifying and explaining key animating themes that are particular to specific members of the Court.

The different contributors also demonstrate the way in which free speech jurisprudence has evolved over time. Some of the Justices included are Oliver Wendell Holmes, George Sutherland, Hugo L. Black, William J. Brennan, John Marshall Harlan II, Potter Stewart, Anthony M. Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Stephen Breyer.
