Church, State and Education. [Volume IV.] Church, State and the First Amendment: A North Carolina Dialogue.
Beach, Waldo, Ed.
This anthology is one of four collections of background readings on church-state issues that comprise "Church, State and the First Amendment: A North Carolina Dialogue." These anthologies are designed to provide primary materials through which North Carolinians can better understand the religion clause of the First Amendment. Volume 4 of the series includes readings on the school prayer controversy, the creationism-evolution debate, the "humanism"-in-the-schools dispute, and government regulation of religious schools. There are seven chapters, each with an introduction and a number of readings, followed by questions for discussion. A 14-item bibliography is included. (AS)
