In one of greatest triumphs of the colonial and Revolutionary periods, the founders of the future US overcame religious intolerance in favour of a constitutional order dedicated to fair treatment for people's deeply held conscientious beliefs. This title presents a historical and conceptual study of the American tradition of religious freedom.

Review:

Liberty of Conscience is wide ranging and covers an extraordinary amount of ground... (it) is a true tour de force on issues of pressing contemporary concern internationally, reaffirming (Martha Nussbaum s) place as one of the most significant and thought-provoking public intellectuals today. Her book is a treasure trove of riches in both religious scholarship and philosophical argument that cannot be overlooked by anyone with an interest in the subject. --Times Higher Education Supplement
