What can you say in a shopping mall? Maniscalco finds not that much, or at least not as much as you were in the past. Public Spaces traces the legal history of how the courts have interpreted balanced the property rights of shopping place owners with the first amendment rights of patrons. The book offers a new vision for how public spaces might be reimagined to re-emphasize public debate and discussion in shopping malls and places of commerce.
