In revising and updating Joseph Tussman's The Supreme Court on Church and State, Robert Alley has collected the major Supreme Court decisions on the separation of church and state to provide a comprehensive and non-partisan guide to the Court's opinions. Cases are presented in their entirety, with many essential dissenting opinions, and cover a representative sample of significant issues. With a historical introduction and a chart of Supreme Court Justices's votes, this book is an important reference on a timely subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The introduction is very helpful for students...A very convenient way for students to get primary material and a grasp of central issues in First Amendment cases. Rick Nutt, Muskingum College Up-to-date...A very useful and highly recommended book for anyone who has an interest in understanding the reasoning behind Supreme Court decisions in this matter of Church-State relations. Faith and Mission A well researched and organized account of Supreme Court cases dealing with church and state matters. Ronald Lauater, University of Florida A very readable survey for students at the lower levels with little or no background in Constitutional Law. John Goulde, Sweet Briar College Robert Alley's The Supreme Court on Church and State fills a longstanding and serious gap in constitutional law teaching materials. It admirably covers the essentials of both free exercise and establishment. The cases have been chosen and edited with great sensitivity to the needs of students at several different levels and of teachers who are legally trained as well as those who are not. The compact size and the modest cost of the book make it an admirable addition to teaching materials in this relatively specialized area. Robert M. O'Neil, President, University of Virginia The best documentary collection dealing with the relationship between Church and State that I have seen. Thomas B. Mega, College of St. Thomas An excellent book of constitutional cases concerning religion. The introduction and the introductory paragraphs for each decision are helpful to the student. The presentation of cases is clear and attractive. This is an important subject of general interest in our time could be a main text...or recommended reading. Exactly what I was looking for. K. J. Pavlischok, University of Pittsburgh We have long awaited an update of Joseph Tussman's 1962 edition...Robert Alley has given us this well-organized and updated version...Well summarized and edited. I have adopted it. Bradley S. Chilton, University of Southern Mississippi I used Tussman until it went out of print. I'm delighted to see it back [and] expanded. Dennis L. Thompson, Brigham Young University An excellent blend of classic and contemporary cases spanning the years 1925-1987...Highly recommended for anyone interested in the Supreme Court's interpretation of one of the most important parts of the Constitution. Choice Written in a fresh, non-partisan fashion, this book furnishes a documentary review essential to an understanding of the Court's role in First Amendment freedoms.
