Abstract: The government's efforts to form a "comprehensive administrative state" [socialist state] has placed it on a collision course with religion. This book explores case law relating to the separation of church and state and demonstrates the tendency for the government to favor irreligious secularism rather than true neutrality.
Keywords: book review, politics, religion, constitution, first amendment, separation of church and state, religious freedom, freedom of religion.
