Trumping Religion: The New Christian Right, the Free Speech Clause, and the Courts

by Steven P. Brown

Condition: Near Fine/Very Good


United States of America: University Alabama Press, 2002. Trumping Religion provides a detailed analysis of the five major public-interest law firms that have litigated religion cases in the federal courts between 1980 and 2000. Allied with several highly vocal, evangelical ministries, such as those of Jerry Falwell and Pat Robinson, these legal organizations argue that religious expression is a form of protected speech and thereby gain a greater latitude of interpretation in the courts. The long-term agenda of the New Christian Right as illuminated by this study is to shape church-state jurisprudence in a way that permits free course for the Christian gospel. Steven P. Brown presents his research and conclusions from a balanced viewpoint. In filling a distinct void in the literature, this book will be of considerable interest to political scientists, legal scholars, law schools and seminaries, and anyone concerned with the intersection of religion and judicial politics.. 1st. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Political Science.
