Email or call for price.
Takes to task Montana's 1918 sedition law that shut down freedom of speech. The sedition law carried fines of up to $20,000 and imprisonment for as much as twenty years. It became a model for the federal sedition act passed in 1918. This book explores the assault on civil rights during times of war when dissent is perceived as unpatriotic.
