Presents in clear form the Supreme Court's reasoning with little editing. In that way the students themselves can discover the reasoning process that justified the result in the case. A key feature is the focused Questions and Notes provided at the end of each case. These are designed to direct the students' attention to the most significant issues raised by the case and to sharpen their focus for class preparation. The book's three chapters focus on the problem of government endorsement of religion in public schools and the public square, government financing of religion, and free exercise of religion.
