Taking Liberties: National Barriers to the Free Flow of Ideas
Praeger, 1990 - 173 pages
Among the specific topics Hull addresses are Supreme Court rulings on the rights of noncitizens, the enactment of the McCarran-Walter Immigration Act and its effects in the 1980s, the handling of classified information and assessments by the American Bar Association, and restrictions on the press. She concludes that policies that act to restrict Americans' access to international sources of information jeopardize national welfare because almost every significant problem confronting Americans today--from drugs to the deficit--is global in character. Throughout her work, Hull defines the relevant constitutional issues and discusses legal cases within a larger social and political context. Ample explanatory information is provided for the reader who lacks an extensive legal background.
