The establishment clause : religion and the First Amendment by Leonard W Levy( Book )

17 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 2,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonard Levy's classic work examines the circumstances that led to the writing of the establishment clause of the First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion ..." He argues that the framers of the Constitution intended to prohibit government aid to religion even on an impartial basis. He thus refutes the view of "nonpreferentialists," who interpret the clause as allowing such aid provided that the assistance is not restricted to a preferred church. For this new edition, Levy has added to his original arguments and incorporated much new material, including an analysis of Jefferson's ideas on the relationship between church and state and a discussion of the establishment clause cases brought before the Supreme Court since the book was originally published in 1986

"The right to a fair trial has been an integral part of American life for centuries. Its central notion is the judgment by an impartial jury of one's peers - a practice so much a part of the American fabric that most Americans do not even question its evolution. How and when this legal custom developed is the subject explored here by one of our most distinguished constitutional scholars. Leonard Levy brings his formidable skills to bear in tracing the development of what many great legal minds have called the "Palladium of Justice.""--Jacket
