520    Balancing respect for religious conviction and the values 
       of liberal democracy is a daunting challenge for judges 
       and lawmakers, particularly when religious groups seek 
       exemption from laws that govern others. Should members of 
       religious sects be able to use peyote in worship? Should 
       pacifists be forced to take part in military service when 
       there is a draft, and should this depend on whether they 
       are religious? How can the law address the refusal of 
       parents to provide medical care to their children--or the 
       refusal of doctors to perform abortions? Religion and the 
       Constitution presents a new framework for addressing these
       and other controversial questions that involve competing 
       demands of fairness, liberty, and constitutional validity.
       In the first of two major volumes on the intersection of 
       constitutional and religious issues in the United States, 
       Kent Greenawalt focuses on one of the Constitution's main 
       clauses concerning religion: the Free Exercise Clause. 
       Beginning with a brief account of the clause's origin and 
       a short history of the Supreme Court's leading decisions 
       about freedom of religion, he devotes a chapter to each of
       the main controversies encountered by judges and 
       lawmakers. Sensitive to each case's context in judging 
       whether special treatment of religious claims is justified,
       Greenawalt argues that the state's treatment of religion 
       cannot be reduced to a single formula. 
520    Calling throughout for religion to be taken more seriously
       as a force for meaning in peopleʼs lives, Religion and the
       Constitution aims to accommodate the maximum expression of
       religious conviction that is consistent with a commitment 
       to fairness and the public welfare. Includes information
