Mary Fuhrman: 714-523-1585 Read with League. Madison's Music: On Reading the First Amendment by Burt Neubourne, The New Press (Feb. 2015) 272 pp.

What if most of what we think we know about reading the text of the First Amendment is just wrong? In Madison's Music, Burt Neuborne argues that the Supreme Court has gotten the actual text wrong. If judges would only look at the First Amendment's full text--all forty-five words--they would discover Madison's music, a First Amendment that is democracy's best friend.
