The Publishing Group of the California Digital Library announces the open access digital publication of Mark G. Yudof’s book When Government Speaks: Politics, Law, and Government Expression in America.

The book has joined more than 32,000 University of California–associated publications in eScholarship, the University’s open access digital publishing platform. All content in eScholarship is freely accessible worldwide.

In the text – published by the University of California Press in 1983 while Yudof was a faculty member at the University of Texas Law School – Yudof argues that government’s ever-increasing participation in communication processes threatens key democratic values that the First Amendment was designed to protect.

Readers of this digital version are able to view an abstract, do keyword searches across the entire publication, “share” news of the title through various Web 2.0 social networking sites, and click through to UC Press’s website to purchase the print version.

eScholarship provides open access, scholarly digital publishing services to the University of California and delivers a dynamic research platform to scholars worldwide.
