Abstract

Tom Emerson published his famous article, Toward a General Theory of the First Amendment1 twenty-five years ago. That article, and its subsequent elaboration in The System of Freedom of Expression, solidified Tom Emerson's position as the leading legal scholar of the first amendment in the post World War II period, perhaps of all time. This well-known story surely merits celebration.
