安东尼·刘易斯: 《批评官员的尺度:〈纽约时报〉诉警察局长沙利文案》 (Make No Law: The Sullivan Case and the First Amendment), 何帆译, 北京大学出版社2011年。 ISBN: 9787301188736 内容简介 1960年,因为一则批评性广告,警察局长沙利文以诽谤为由,将《纽约时报》告上法庭,并申请巨额赔偿。两审失利后,几乎被各地政府官员相继提起的索赔逼至绝境的《纽约时报》,奋起上诉至联邦最高法院。九位大法官在“《纽约时报》诉沙利文案”中力挽狂澜,宣布“对公共事务的讨论应当不受抑制、充满活力并广泛公开”,维护了媒体、公民批评官员的自由。《纽约时报》资深记者、两度普利策奖得主安东尼·刘易斯,以翔实史料、生动笔触,系统回顾了这起新闻自由史上的里程碑案件,并循此为线,串接起美国人民争取言论自由的司法抗争历史,完美展现了霍姆斯、布兰代斯、汉德、沃伦、布伦南、布莱克、韦克斯勒等伟大法官和律师的形象。
