It includes extensive coverage of the Court's major decisions concerning prayer in state legislatures, the pledge of allegiance, display of the Ten Commandments in public buildings, religious displays on public property, school prayer, vouchers for religious schools, religion in science class, and much more.
Edited with a carefully prepared historical introduction that places the First Amendment in the context of 18th-century debates over religious freedom, this book offers a fresh historical analysis of the amendment's origins.
