"Demonstrates with clarity and simplicity why the First Amendment trumps government restrictions on campaign finance as well as corporate and commercial speech."-, "Brilliant. . . . must reading for legislators, editorial writers and the general public . . . rigorous and persuasive."-, "Martin Redish, one of our foremost first amendment scholars, examines one of the most important issues of our times: May the government intervene to "improve" the marketplace of ideas by restricting the speech of the economically powerful and perhaps subsidizing the speech of the less powerful?

Anyone interested in the constitutional and policy implications of campaign finance reform and other proposals to "equalize" speech must read this book."-Larry Alexander, Warren Distinguished Professor of Law, University of San Diego "A straight-forward and compelling case for First Amendment protection of campaign contributions as well as corporate and commercial speech."-, "A thoughtful, provocative, and important work from one of the nation's foremost First Amendment scholars, covering some of the most significant debates in free speech law today."-Professor Eugene Volokh, UCLA Law School
