Girls Lean Back Everywhere: The Law of Obscenity and the Assault on Genius (Paperback)
From Ulysses and Lolita to Lenny Bruce and 2 Live Crew, defense attorney de Grazia weaves provocative and sometimes appalling case histories into an incisive look at obscenity: what it is, who defines it, and whether it is possible to ban even its most troubling instances without unraveling the fabric of democracy.
"A thoughtful, comprehensive and insightful analysis of our society's struggle toward maturity, wisdom and tolerance. It captures the spirit of the judicial decisions, the bitter controversies, and the extraordinary characters whose lives are intertwined with the evolution of our legal and cultural mores." --Geoffrey R. Stone, Dean, University of Chicago Law School
