The Legal Status of Church-State Relationships in the United States

With Special Reference to the Public Schools

Author:

Alvin W. Johnson

The Legal Status of Church-State Relationships in the United States

A veritable “book of knowledge” on both the legal and religious aspects of the problem of sectarian influence on American public elementary and secondary school. Whether or not one agrees with all of the author’s conclusions, he cannot but admire the scholarly thoroughness with which this book explores state constitutions, statutes, and court decisions for evidence bearing upon the attitude taken by the American people toward religion in the schools.
