520    No right seems more fundamental to American public life 
       than freedom of speech. Yet well into the twentieth 
       century, that freedom was still an unfulfilled promise, 
       with Americans regularly imprisoned merely for speaking 
       out against government policies. Indeed, free speech as we
       know it comes less from the First Amendment than from a 
       most unexpected source: Supreme Court justice Oliver 
       Wendell Holmes. A lifelong skeptic, he disdained all 
       individual rights, including the right to express one's 
       political views. But in 1919, it was Holmes who wrote a 
       dissenting opinion that would become the canonical 
       affirmation of free speech in the United States. Why did 
       Holmes change his mind? That question has puzzled 
       historians for almost a century. Now, with the aid of 
       newly discovered letters and confidential memos, law 
       professor Thomas Healy reconstructs in vivid detail 
       Holmes's journey from free-speech opponent to First 
       Amendment hero. It is the story of a remarkable behind-the
       -scenes campaign by a group of progressives to bring a 
       legal icon around to their way of thinking-and a deeply 
       touching human narrative of an old man saved from 
       loneliness and despair by a few unlikely young friends. 
       Beautifully written and exhaustively researched, The Great
       Dissent is intellectual history at its best, revealing how
       free debate can alter the life of a man and the legal 
       landscape of an entire nation.
