Faith and Freedom: Religious Liberty in America (Critical Issue)by Marvin E. Frankel
Synopses & Reviews
The Hill and Wang Critical Issues Series: concise, affordable works on pivotal topics in American history, society, and politics.
Faith and Freedom offers an illuminating analysis of disputes over the religion clauses in the First Amendment. Frankel examines the most dramatic of the court cases concerned with these issues in the last half century--the claimed rights of Native Americans to use peyote in religious ceremonies, the demand of Amish parents to exempt their children from laws requiring school attendance, and many more. Arguing in the tradition of Roger Williams, Frankel suggests we must accept only the bare minimum of breaches between the religious domain and the state.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 125) and index.
