Expert authors summarize the principles set forth in case law and explore the philosophical foundations of First Amendment law. Current theories are examined to explain the rationale behind constitutional protection for free expression and freedom of religion. The debate between separationists and religious accommodationists in establishment clause jurisprudence is featured in this text as well.
A nice little textbook on freedom of religion and speech. We are put off by the 13 pages of West Publishing Co. books advertised ahead of the title page. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
