Product Description

This Religion and the State book examines the interpretative issues that have always been at the forefront of litigation based on the Religion Clause, including:

What is the effect of history and original intent on the meaning of the modern Religion Clauses?
What is the proper role for religion in a modern, religiously pluralist, secular democracy?
What constitutes "religion"?
Is any such definition of "religion" applicable to both the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses?

Religion and the State, written in a politically balanced tone, draws from various resources, including Supreme Court case law, lower court opinions, academic literature, and legislative texts to provide a well-rounded examination of these pivotal and intriguing questions. The materials also address specific areas of Religion Clause litigation such as:

Symbolic endorsement of religion by the government;
Government funding of religious activities;
Government efforts to accommodate idiosyncratic religious practices.
