Leonard W. Levy's Legacy of Suppression so disturbed Supreme Court Justice Hugo L. Black that he called it "one of the mosts devastating blows that has been delivered against civil liberty for a long time."Published in 1960, this book challenged the liberal interpretation of the First Amendment by claiming that the framers of the Constitution intended it only as a protection against the prior restraint of a publication. It was not, Levy vehemently argued, meant to be used as a defense in seditious libel cases. In other words, freedom of the press meant that a publisher had the freedom to publish, but not without impunity.In Emergence of Free Press, Levy rethinks many of the controversial opinions put forth in the original work. A revised and enlarged edition of the first volume, it offers a more moderate view of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. Based on extensive additional research, especially on the newspapers published in Revolutionary America, Levy now concedes that the original interpretation of the First Amendment, even if it wasn't the framer's intention, was broad in scope. "That so many courageous and irresponsible editors risked imprisonment amazes me." he writes. Though he holds to his belief in the writers' intention, he concludes that we don't have to be limited by their narrow view."Seldom has a major constitutional scholar reversed his field under such brilliant light and with such a startling admission...Mr. Levy's contribution becomes him. He has learned--which makes him a fine teacher for us all--and he makes us think hard about our Constitution."--The New York Times"Emergence of a Free Press delivers an even more rousing lesson than its predecessor."--Philadelphia Inquirer·"A lively and important book."--The ProgressiveA major Constitutional scholar rethinks his controversial views about the First Amendment

Emergence of a Free Press book. Levy (April 9, 1923 – August 24, 2006) was the Andrew W. Mellon All-Claremont Professor of Humanities and Chairman of the Graduate Faculty of History at Claremont Graduate School, California. He was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and educated at Columbia University, where his mentor for the P. degree was Henry Steele Commager.

Emergence of a Free Press received the 1986 Mencken Award for Best Book from the Free Press Association. While maintaining that his earlier views of the state of the law were correct, Levy acknowledged the criticisms posed by historians of journalism, who stressed the difference between "law on the books" and "law as applied". Thus, Levy conceded that in actuality freedom of the press may well have been wider and more generous than his earlier book had posited.

Not quite a recantation of the iconoclastic ''Legacy of Suppression,'' ''Emergence of a Free Press'' is the forthright admission of a dogged scholar that his theory of what the framers of the First Amendment had in mind has been challenged by a feisty legion of revolutionary printers and pamphleteers.
