Offering the most significant contributions on the topic from leading contemporary scholars, J. Caleb Stanton's carefully edited and organized The Ethics of Citizenship seeks to answer one of the most salient and hotly debated questions of the day: What role, if any, should religion play in U.S. politics? While there is a considerable body of writing in response to this question, until now there has not been a one-volume collection of relevant answers. Here, at last, a variety of distinguished political theorists--from John Rawls to Richard Rorty, and from Nicholas Wolterstorff to Cornel West--weigh in on this important topic, and, together, provide a balanced and engaging overview of the debate that continues to grip the nation.
