"Haig Bosmajian traces the history of the freedom not to speak from the Middle Ages and Inquisition to the Salem witchcraft trials and on to the twentieth century and the House Committee on Un-American Activities. His history addresses the eighteenth-century Revolutionary War and demands for expressions of loyalty, the Civil War and Reconstruction loyalty oaths, and the expulsion of Jehovah's Witnesses from schools for refusing to salute the flag."--Jacket

Metaphor and reason in judicial opinions by Haig A Bosmajian( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While much has been written on the use of metaphor in literature and religion, science and philosophy, few articles and no books have discussed its function in legal opinions. To the public, judges handing down judicial decisions present arguments derived through rational discourse and literal language. Yet, as Judge Richard Posner has pointed out, "rhetorical power counts for a lot in law. Science, not to mention everyday thought, is influenced by metaphors. Why shouldn't law be?" Haig Bosmajian examines the crucial role of the trope--metaphors, personifications, metonymies--in argumentation and reveals the surprisingly important place that figurative, nonliteral language holds in judicial decision making. Focusing on the specific genre of the legal opinion, Professor Bosmajian discusses the question of why we have judicial opinions at all and the importance of style in them. He then looks at specific well-known figures of speech such as the "wall of separation between church and state," justice personified as a female, or the Constitution as "color-blind," explaining why they are not straight-forward statements of legal fact but examples of the ways tropes are used in legal language

Anita Whitney, Louis Brandeis, and the First Amendment by Haig A Bosmajian( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evolution of Brandeis's eloquent concurring opinion that accompanied the unanimous decision against Whitney and simultaneously undermined it, has its own complex history in that it converges and develops the ideas and arguments of two of Brandeis's opinions: Ruthenberg v. Michigan and Whitney v. California. The Whitney opinion may never have become a major statement about First Amendment rights had communist Charles Ruthenberg not died at the time Whitney was being decided. Brandeis's opinion is alive today, while the majority opinion has been rejected by the High Court in 1969: "Whitney has been thoroughly discredited" and "overruled."
