3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 9, 2004
Format: Paperback
Prize-winning historian Shawn Peters presents The Yoder Case: Religious Freedom, Education, And Parental Rights, a scholarly study of the crucial 1972 Supreme Court ruling in a case when a Wisconsin Amish community claimed that compulsory education past a certain age was in conflict with its religious views and therefore removed its children from public schools. Also available in a hardcover edition, The Yoder Case is a detailed, impartial analysis of events, and a fascinating account recommended for law school students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the separation of Church and State issues.

Hello

I find this Book very interesting. Shawn Peters gives a very intersting insight and Information into this case It gives detailed information, but it is not boring at the same time. It also good for "Beginners" in this Cas. not to thick either.

It gives also some background informations. But again not to much.
