This wide-ranging anthology of sixteen well documented essays offers new knowledge on the relationship of religion and state. It is a worthy continuation of the late Josh Stein's success in making Roger Williams University a preeminent forum on the subject of religious freedom that is so appropriate to the spirit of its namesake. -- Lawrence B. Goodheart, University of Connecticut
This collection is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the fundamental role that religion played and continues to play in the formation of both political thought and identities. It is a thought provoking engagement with religion in context applied to both historical and contemporary relations between church and state-a refreshing study to be sure. -- Sara Kitzinger, The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts
The variety of themes and perspectives represented characterizes the swirl of intense discourses that typify discussion of "religion" and "state" in the field of religious studies at present.... There is now a substantial body of literature in religious studies that confronts the variability, ambiguity, and ever-shifting contingency of the concepts on which the discipline itself is based.... The editors have productively stirred the pot of discourse about religion, American history, and global politics with this publication. I look forward to seeing how they build upon their achievement in future conferences and collections. * Reading Religion *
