Oxford University Press

Evaluates existing Church–State decisions from the point of view of the interpretation of the First Amendment as a single mandate against the exercise of government jurisdiction in religion. It deals with Church property disputes, government assistance to parochial schools, and government promotion of religion. It also examines claims for exemption for the sake of conscience and how the Court has dealt with these. It shows how the Court can bring its decisions into harmony with an historical understanding of the First Amendment and remedy the disparity that currently exists between the Court's reasoning and the actual decisions it makes.

Keywords:   Church property disputes, Church–State, claims for exemption, conscience, government promotion of religion, parochial schools
