Religion on Trial: A Handbook with Cases, Laws, and Documents
ABC-CLIO, 2004 - 329 strani
From colonial times to the present, an insightful examination of how courts have determined the extent to which religion is accommodated in American public life.
This volume chronicles such groundbreaking cases as the 1991 decision ordering blood transfusions for children of Christian Scientists in Norwood Hospital v. Munoz and the infamous case, Engel v.
