Smith argues that the goal of American religious liberty has been ill served by the Supreme Court doctrines of the past half century. No mere diatribe, but a careful critique by a tremendously erudite and subtle scholar, The Rise and Decline of American Religious Freedom
is one of the most important books on religious liberty in years. (Andrew Koppelman, Northwestern University)
