Industry Reviews

"An outstanding collection of materials examining various facets of a truly complicated issue, the proper relationship between religion (and persons with strong religious views) and the wider polity. Even well-read scholars will benefit from reading the volume, though I suspect that the primary beneficiaries of the book will be students whose own intellectual energies will certainly be stimulated by confrontation with the various essays. There is, currently, no book that brings together so many provocative thinkers in a way designed to illuminate the issues presented by the interaction of law and religion, and I would relish using it in a course or seminar on the topic. -Sanford Levinson, University of Texas Law School, co-editor, Constitutional Stupidities/Constitutional Tragedies (NYU Press, 1998)
