DescriptionIn

Law and Religion: National, International, and Comparative Perspectives, every chapter supports a broad and dynamic discussion of familiar issues by placing them in a global context.  Offering extensive international and comparative law materials, as well as Establishment Clause and Free Exercise cases, authors Durham and Scharffs bring new vision and scope to the study of Law and Religion.

Law and Religion features:

• U.S. materials that include the major Free Exercise and Establishment Clause cases that teachers of law and religion  courses are accustomed to teaching

• International law materials, including key human rights instruments, over 20 cases from the European Court of Human Rights and decisions of key United Nations bodies

• comparative law cases and materials that reflect more than fifteen countries and regions; comparative law issues explored include corporal punishment, compelled patriotic observances, state funding of religions, and much more

• Islamic, Christian, and Jewish perspectives on freedom of religion, touching on defamation of religion, the Danish Mohammed cartoon controversy, the constitutions of Iraq, religious political parties in Turkey, and the definition of being Jewish for rights of citizenship in Israel

Law and Religion: National, International, and Comparative  Perspectives comes with a Teacher’s Manual and supports courses on Law and Religion, Church and State, International Human Rights, Comparative Constitutional Law, and the First Amendment.
