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. Vitale, that banned prayer in schools and ignited calls for Chief Justice Earl Warren's impeachment. The work addresses such inflammatory contemporary disputes as prayer in schools, allegiance to the flag, and the display of religious symbols on public property, and the impact they have had on American society.
