Democracy & Religious Freedom
2005 Winter Quarter


The  following are the books that will be required reading for this class. This is the list provided to the Evergreen bookstore for ordering.  Our principal text will be the casebook, listed first below.  The Evergreen bookstore will have in stock the edition of these books that we will use.  If you buy your books elsewhere, make sure that you do not get an edition older than the one listed below.
Required reading for first class? None, but reading will be demanding (as to difficulty, not quantitiy measured by number of pages), so if you want to get an early start you might begin with pages 1-20 of the casebook (listed first, below) and pages 1-18 (Introduction) of the Judging Jehovah's Witnesses book.  We will read the remainder of the latter book later in the quarter.  The casebook is our main text, which we will be using throughout the quarter.
