Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A useful review of religious freedom for general readers and lower-division undergraduates."

-

Choice

"[T]houghtful and well-written account . . . explores the origins and traces the development of America's religious liberty, the underlying principle of the policy of church and state separation . . . Given the timeliness of this subject, as well as the ongoing need to be ever-vigilant about matters of church and state, this work would be a valuable addition to high school and college libraries."

After describing the origins and development of the concept and the establishment and free-exercise clauses of the Constitution, he provides a list of key people, cases, and events; the texts of relevant documents; a chronology; a table of cases; and an annotated bibliography.
