About the Author:

Ronald Collins is a scholar at the First Amendment Center in Washington, D.C. He is a noted authority on free speech law. His last book, The Trials of Lenny Bruce (with David Skover), was selected by the Los Angeles Times as one of the best books of the year. Collins is also the co-author (with Sam Chaltain) of the forthcoming We Must Not Be Afraid to Be Free: Stories of Free Speech in America and the editor of Constitutional Government in America. His scholarly articles have appeared in the Harvard Law Review, the Stanford Law Review and the Supreme Court Review, among other places.

Review:

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., one of the greatest legal minds in American history, revised many of his own views while playing a pivotal role in transforming the American law of free speech from a restrictive to a protective tradition. Beyond collecting for the first time an impressive array of sources by and about Holmes that relate to his thinking about free speech, Collins has added his own incisive commentary. This comprehensive volume is a major contribution to scholarship on Holmes and the First Amendment.
David Rabban
Dahr Jamail, Randall Hage Jamail and Robert Lee Jamail Regents Chair
University Distinguished Teaching Professor
University of Texas School of Law

In this remarkable volume, First Amendment scholar Ronald Collins traces the extraordinary evolution of Holmes's thinking -- in his own words -- on free speech over a seventy-year span of his life. With the guidance provided by Collins's insightful introductions to each chapter, the reader is swept along in the intellectual journey that ultimately made Holmes the most important advocate of free speech in American history. With this book, Holmes's Phoenix rises yet again.
Geoffrey R. Stone , Edward H. Levi Distinguished Service Professor
The University of Chicago School of Law

Holmes's most famous concrete contribution to American law came in the eloquent and ultimately successful advocacy of heightened judicial protection for free expression that he launched near the end of his life in his Abrams and Gitlow dissents. In this book, Ron Collins has done a great service by going carefully and thoughtfully through the whole of Holmes's life and career with a constant eye on that late First Amendment contribution, assembling a remarkable range of relevant Holmesiana, and surrounding it with judiciously selected scholarly commentary.
Thomas Grey, Sweitzer Professor Emeritus, Stanford Law School

The Fundamental Holmes is an absolutely indispensable anthology enriched by eight illuminating and well written essays. Ron Collins masterfully brings the real Holmes to life - good, bad, liberal, conservative, hero, and villain. The work is wise, passionate, engaging, reflective, and altogether enjoyable.
Steven Shiffrin, Charles Frank Reavis, Sr., Professor of Law, Cornell University

"This thoughtful and stimulating book reminds us how often judicial rulings are the product more of emotion than of close reasoning."
Louis Fisher, The Federal Lawyer
