School prayer : the Court, the Congress, and the First Amendment by Robert S Alley( Book )

What did the Founding Fathers intend by these words from the First Amendment, and how should this amendment be applied to the free exercise of religion today? In School Prayer, Robert Alley examines the history behind the writing of the religion clauses of the First Amendment, the courts' interpretations of these clauses over two centuries, and the debates in Congress over their application, especially as regards prayer in public schools. Alley begins with an extensive analysis of the writings and actions of James Madison, described as "the architect of the religion clauses" and "the single most important voice for religious liberty in the nation's history." Madison is viewed as a proponent of strict separation between church and state and as opposed to any form of state-sponsored religious establishment. Alley then discusses the history of the "protestant hegemony" in the nineteenth century and the attitude of messianism as reflected in presidential pronouncements on the relation of religion to government. All this is presented as background to the debates in the latter half of our own century over the role of prayer in public schools. Alley reviews some thirty years of congressional testimony and key Supreme Court decisions. He gives special attention to the highly controversial Engel v. Vitale decision in 1962, which banned the recitation of a prayer composed by the New York State Board of Regents in public schools. This decision unleashed a storm of protests, which has continued to this day and has given rise to numerous congressional proposals to amend or overturn the Court's ruling. Extensive selections from the arguments on both sides of the controversy afford the reader a firsthand look into the many deliberations surrounding this sensitive and timely matter

The constitution & religion : leading Supreme Court cases on church and state( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edited with a carefully prepared historical introduction that places the First Amendment in the context of eighteenth-century debates over religious freedom, The Constitution and Religion offers a fresh analysis of the amendment's origins. In a collection of fifty recent and historical decisions concerning freedom of religion, Robert S. Alley places readers at the heart of the national debate, presenting the cases without editorial comment. By carefully extracting extended footnoting and citations that, in the full text, tend to separate legal opinions from public interest, Alley has cast the justices' thoughts in a format that captures the drama and, frequently, the eloquence of the prose that is, for now, the law of the land."--Jacket
Women television producers : transformation of the male medium by Robert S Alley( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In their 1983 book The Producer's Medium authors Robert Alley and Horace Newcomb made the point that "There are, to our regret, no women and no minority members in this book because the structure of the television industry, like the structure of American society, has been dominated by white males," But in that year Producer Marcy Carsey was focused upon selling the new "Cosby Show," which premiered in 1984, to NBC and its president, Grant Tinker." "The focus of Women Television Producers is upon a new cadre of women producers, who, as a result of rulings by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission in the early seventies, found employment in the three major networks beginning in 1971-72. In the following decade many of them emerged as television producers and writers."--Jacket
