Few areas of public policy in the United States are as politically contentious and legally confusing as church-state relations. The traditional approach to these issues, rooted in a strict separation of church and state, is being drawn into question today by increasing levels of religious pluralism.

Equal Treatment of Religion in a Pluralistic Society

Overview

Few areas of public policy in the United States are as politically contentious and legally confusing as church-state relations. The traditional approach to these issues, rooted in a strict separation of church and state, is being drawn into question today by increasing levels of religious pluralism.

Equal Treatment of Religion in a Pluralistic Society provides the first analysis of a new paradigm for discussing church-state relations that has growing popularity in Congress and has recently been used in several Supreme Court rulings. Ten leading scholars of constitutional law and political science trace the development of equal treatment theory, consider its implications for public policy and church-state relations, and evaluate it from a number of ideological perspectives.
