Booklist Review

Gr. 7-12. Religion is the focus in this entry in the well-received Opposing Viewpoints series. The book is divided into four broad sections that address the questions: Is America a religious nation? Can religion solve America's problems? What should be done to accommodate religious freedom? What role should religion play in public school? The discussions cover such topics as whether America was founded on Christian principles, the role of government in social services programs operated by religious organizations, and religion in public schools. The writings are both thoughtful and provocative, and the essayists range from conservatives to the very liberal Alan Dershowitz. Questions for further discussion and an inclusive list of organizations (everything from American Atheists to the Christian Coalition) add to the book's usefulness. Includes chapter bibliographies. --Ilene Cooper
