Bruce Ledewitz. Church, state, and the crisis in American secularism. Indiana University Press, c2011.

KF4865.L43 2011

 

Since 1947, the Supreme Court has promised government neutrality toward religion, but the public square is anything but neutral. This book seeks common ground for believers and nonbelievers regarding the law of church and state. The author argues that allowing government to promote higher law values through the use of religious imagery would resolve the current impasse in the interpretation of the Establishment Clause. It would offer secularism an escape from its current tendency toward relativism in its dismissal of all that religion represents and encourage a deepening of the expression of meaning in the public square without compromising secular conceptions of government.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ruben Zaiotti. Cultures of border control : Schengen and the evolution of European frontiers. University of Chicago Press, c2011.

KZ3684.5.E85Z35 2011

 

In recent years, a number of European countries abolished national border controls in favor of Europe’s external frontiers. In doing so, they challenged long-established conceptions of sovereignty, territoriality, and security in world affairs. In this book, the author traces the transformation of underlying assumptions and cultural practices guiding European policymakers and postnational Europe. The book also includes a fascinating comparison to developments in North America, where the United States has pursued more restrictive border control strategies since 9/11.
