Designed to be used either as a primary text or with any Law and Religion or First Amendment text, Law and Religion: Cases in Context presents descriptions and discussions of the landmark cases in law and religion and the First Amendment. Cases are selected from the leading religion and First Amendment casebooks, and the authors provide insights into the significance of each while revealing its context and, for many, details about what happened after the case was concluded. This unique text will intrigue students and engage their interest with: - Accessible prose and interesting illustrations; - Cases that involve issues that continue to confound the courts: creation science and evolution; public religious symbols like the cross and the crèche; private religious clothing like the yarmulke and the khimar; tax policy and religion; - Engaging characters, such as: Guy Ballard, who told customers that he was chosen by Saint Germain as a divine messenger and possessed supernatural healing powers that they could purchase; Officer and Doctor Simcha Goldman, who wore a yarmulke to the psychology clinic until an irritated military attorney complained to Goldman's superiors that the yarmulke was not permitted under Air Force regulations; Kimberlie Webb, a Philadelphia police officer who lost her efforts to wear a headscarf while in uniform and on duty; Ronald Rosenberger, who successfully challenged the University of Virginia's denial of funding to his evangelical publication, Wide Awake; - Insights from leading law and religion scholars of diverse professional, religious, geographical, and institutional backgrounds. In her role as editor, Leslie C. Griffin, who holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Yale University as well as a J.D. from Stanford Law School, has brought together an impressive group of contributors to create Law and Religion: Cases in Context.

Noonan's 1985 casebook situated the text of the First Amendment Religion Clause firmly within its larger historical context. In the eighteenth century American rebellion against monarchy, free exercise of religion was a rallying cry as familiar and as central as no taxation without representation. No coerced support of a distant crown nor an established church. Noonan and Gaffney enable students to read the Court's cases with the insight that the two provisions on religion in the First Amendment are not in conflict with one another, but are equally important ways of saying the same thing. In the second edition, which Foundation Press published under the title Religious Freedom: History, Cases, and Other Materials on the Interaction of Religion and Government in 2001, the principal changes were insertions of new cases decided by the Supreme Court into PART THREE of the book. Gaffney's Third Edition now includes biblical texts that form the predicate for themes explored later in the book. The most significant change is material about emperor worship that is directly relevant to the experience of sporadic persecution described in Chapter Two and to the core religious value of refusal to worship the State that recurs throughout all of the other chapters of this volume. Chapter Two fills in the prior gap between the New Testament (end of the first century of the common era) and St. Augustine (beginning of fifth century CE). In Chapter Three there is more contextualization of St. Augustine's approval of mild coercion of the Donatist heretics in North Africa by Roman imperial officials, and a new treatment of Augustine's strong rejection of efforts to convert Jews to Christianity or to coerce them in matters of faith, and

Challenging students to question the political and philosophical assumptions underlying the law, Education Law, Policy, and Practice promotes a depth of understanding about the key cases and statutes. The authors integrate the law with policy and practice, following related political, financial, and practical issues. The law is presented through a teachable mix of key cases and materials on the practice and political aspects of school law, and an effective macro organization helps place topics into an integrated framework. Each of the major issues in education law is discussed at length: the boundaries of public and private, church and state, relations; school governance and the tensions between federal power and local control; the rights and responsibilities of students and teachers; and the educational environment and its liabilities.
