About this book

In the case City of Boerne v. Flores, the Supreme Court struck down the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. Waltman offers the first book-length analysis of the act to show how this case contributes to an intense legal debate still ongoing today: Can and should the Supreme Court be the exclusive interpreter of the Constitution?

Reviews

“In this concise and informative book, Waltman aptly discusses the legal intricacies of the case in a manner that is approachable to the reader without legal training. … The book reminds us that the sterile cases contained in U.S. Reports concern real litigants with interesting stories and frequently involve a host of important decisions over the course of litigation that impact the ultimate outcome. … a perfect text for any undergraduate course in church and state.” (Steven K. Green, Religious Studies Review, Vol. 43 (2), June, 2017)
