To serve God and Mammon : church-state relations in American politics by Ted G Jelen( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 1,936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newly revised and updated, To Serve God and Mammon is a classic in the field of religion and politics that provides an unbiased introduction and overview of churchûstate relations in the United States. Jelen begins by exploring the inherent tension between the Establishment and Free Exercise clauses of the First Amendment. He then examines how different actors in American politics (e.g., the courts, Congress, the president, ordinary citizens) have different and conflicting values that affect their attitudes and actions toward the relationship between the sacred and the secular. Finally, he dis

A wall of separation? : debating the public role of religion by Mary C Segers( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Should the wall of separation between church and state be permeable or inviolable? This question has been hotly contested since the nation's founding and contentious debates persist today. With a collection of the most significant documents and an introduction by Clarke E. Cochran that provides the historical context of the debate, prominent scholars Mary Segers and Ted Jelen debate the impact of organized religion on the democratic process, examine its influence on political discourse, and discuss its significance for the creation of public policy

Religion and regimes : support, separation, and opposition by MEHRAN TAMADONFAR( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is a collection of essays that describe and analyze religion and regime relations in various nations in the contemporary world. The contributors examine patterns of interaction between religious actors and national governments that include separation, support, and opposition. In general, the contributors find that most countries have a majority or plurality religious tradition, which will seek a privileged position in public life. The nature of the relationship between such traditions and national policy is largely determined by the nature of opposition. A pattern of quasi-establishment is most common in settings in which opposition to a dominant religious tradition is explicitly religious. However, in some instances, the dominant tradition is associated with a discredited prior regime, in which a pattern of legal separation is most common. Conversely, in some nations, a dominant religion is, for historical reasons, strong associated with national identity. Such regimes are often characterized by a “lazy monopoly,” in which the public influence of religion is reduced. --

Perspectives on the politics of abortion by Perspectives on the politics of abortion( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perspectives on the Politics of Abortion examines the abortion issue from ethical, empirical, and legal angles and offers some rather unconventional analyses and surprising conclusions with regard to this familiar issue. One chapter argues that the emphasis on rights has made illegal and occasionally violent activity on the part of pro-life activists increasingly likely. Another chapter suggests that abortion is an instance of the more general right to self-defense. A chapter considers the problem of abortion from the standpoint of participants in the political process. And chapters examine th

Religion and politics in comparative perspective the one, the few, and the many( Recording )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many countries religion is a powerful source of political mobilization, and in some it is a potent social cleavage. Some religions reinforce the state; other provide the space for resistance. This book contains a series of detailed studies examining religion and politics in specific countries or regions. The cases include countries with one dominant religious tradition and countries with two or more competing traditions. They include Catholicism, Protestantism, Islam, Hinduism, Shinto, and Buddhism. They include states in which religion and politics are closely linked and states with at least a low wall of separation between church and state.-Back cover
