From Reference & Research Book News

Siegel, a special education attorney and founder and director of the National Deaf Education Project, believes the right to communication and language is part of the individual’s right to liberty and argues eloquently here for enforcement of the First and Fourteenth Amendments. He thoroughly examines the reasoning behind the Court’s decision and the real meaning of “free speech.” He offers legal and constitutional strategies for change in interpretation of current policy and legislation that will support the right of all to receive and transmit information.

Lawrence M. Siegel is the founder of ForWords and an attorney in San Francisco, CA.
