Law and Religion: Cases and Materials

Files

Description

The third edition continues the book's interdisciplinary approach to law and religion, including background materials about the religions involved in the cases and readings about comparative religion. The new edition features important recent Supreme Court religion cases (Hosanna Tabor, Salazar v. Buono, and Christian Legal Society). Updated treatment of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) is included in Chapter 4. Chapter 9 includes a new section on the defamation of religion, asking whether prohibitions on defamation of religion violate human rights. The new edition also examines two recent developments in American religion: first, the continued growth in numbers of the "Nones" (the religiously unaffiliated), and second, new concerns that anti-Muslim discrimination is increasing and that Muslims are not enjoying the full protection of the First Amendment.
