Encyclopedia of Religious Freedom: Volume 4 of Religion & Society
The Encyclopedia of Religious Freedom is the fourth volume of the acclaimed Religion & Society series. Religious freedom, religious rights, and church-state relations are intertwined issues in the United States and around the world. In fact, the quest for freedom by religious groups is intrinsic to human history and still resonates in today’s world — be it the struggle of Falun Gong practitioners in China, court cases against the Church of Scientology in Germany, or the debate over the pledge of Allegiance in the United States.

Library Journal –
The fourth entry in Routledge’s outstanding series on religion and society… An important work…and no previous encyclopedia cover this area. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.
The chronological scope and the geographical range of coverage are impressive… Especially noteworthy are the generally excellent bibliographies at the end of each entry… This volume fills a void in reference sources on this increasingly important topic and is recommended for academic and large public libraries.
A reliable starting place… Will ground serious students of religion and history in the processes of learning and unprejudiced understanding of religious issues outside their own faith… A wealth of information… Recommended. All collections.
