Product Description

Law and Religion, Cases and Materials fills the need for an interdisciplinary approach to law and religion. It combines a thorough academic review of religion with broad legal coverage that extends beyond the Supreme Court's First Amendment cases to other federal and state cases about a range of religious topics. In addition to chapters on Free Exercise and Establishment, the book's topics include:

Individual Conscience and the State (examining conscientious objection and civil disobedience in the military, medical and legal professions);
Religion and Politics;
Comparative Religious Freedom (studying the protection of religious freedom in international law as well as the recognition of religious freedom by the world’s religious traditions); and
Church Autonomy (legal disputes about torts, property and employment law).

This casebook's distinguishing feature is that it addresses religion as well as law, giving students more resources to learn about the world’s religious traditions. Just as law and economics includes economics, and law and literature studies literature, this casebook takes a similar interdisciplinary approach to show how a thorough examination of religion is vital to understanding how courts confront the wide array of issues associated with religion.
