Inspired by a 1988 trip to El Salvador, Michael J. Perry's new book is a personal and scholarly exploration of the idea of human rights. Perry is one of our nation's leading authorities on the relation of morality, including religious morality, to politics and law. He seeks, in this book, todisentangle the complex idea of human rights by way of four probing and interrelated essays.* The initial essay, which is animated by Perry's skepticism about the capacity of any secular morality to offer a coherent account of the idea of human rights, suggests that the first part of the idea of human right

Religion in politics : constitutional and moral perspectives by Michael J Perry( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Michael Perry addresses several fundamental questions about the proper role of religion in the politics of a liberal democracy, which is a central, recurring issue in the politics of the United States. The controversy about religion in politics comprises both constitutional and moral questions. According to the constitutional law of the United States, government may not "establish" religion. Given this "nonestablishment" requirement, what role (if any) is it constitutionally permissible for religion to play in the politics of the United States? Does a legislator or other public official, or even an ordinary citizen, violate the nonestablishment requirement by presenting a religious argument in public debate about what political choice to make?
Toward a theory of human rights : religion, law, courts by Michael J Perry( Book )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neither the morality of human rights nor its relation to the law of human rights is well understood. In this book, Michael Perry addresses three large issues. There is undeniably a religious ground - indeed, more than one religious ground - for the morality of human rights. But is there a secular ground for the morality of human rights? What is the relation between the morality of human rights and the law of human rights? Perry here addresses the controversial issues of capital punishment, abortion, and same-sex unions. What is the proper role of courts, in a liberal democracy, in protecting - and therefore in interpreting - constitutionally entrenched human rights? In considering this question, special attention is paid to the Supreme Court and how it should rule on issues such as capital punishment and abortion. Toward a Theory of Human Rights makes a significant contribution both to human rights studies and to constitutional theory
Under God? : religious faith and liberal democracy by Michael J Perry( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The proper role of religious faith in the public life of a liberal democracy is one of the most important and controversial issues in the United States today. In this new book, Michael J. Perry argues that political reliance on religious faith violate neither the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution nor, more broadly, the morality of liberal democracy. Nonetheless, Perry argues, religious believers sometimes have good reasons to be wary about relying on religious beliefs in making political decisions. Along the way, Perry thoughtfully addresses three subjects at the center of fierce contemporary political debate: school vouchers, same-sex marriage, and abortion."--Jacket
Constitutional rights, moral controversy, and the Supreme Court by Michael J Perry( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Swedish and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If a majority of the justices of the Supreme Court believes that a law violates the Constitution, it does not necessarily follow that the Court should rule that the law is unconstitutional. In cases in which it is argued that a law violates the Constitution, the Supreme Court must decide which of two importantly different questions it should address: (1) Is the challenged law unconstitutional? (2) Is the lawmakers' judgment that the challenged law is constitutional a reasonable judgment?"--Provided by publisher

"In the period since the end of the Second World War, there has emerged what has never before existed: a truly global morality--specifically, a global political morality.
