Thanks very much to Ron Colombo for his many stimulating posts in June. Ron may stay on for a short bit to finish up some last posts, and we hope to get him back again soon.
And it is a special pleasure to welcome Steven D. Smith, who will be posting with us for the next little while. Steve is one of the very most interesting, thoughtful, and insightful scholars of constitutional law and law and religion. He joins us from the University of San Diego School of Law, where he is the Class of 1975 Endowed Professor as well as co-Executive Director (with the great Larry Alexander) of the Institute for Law and Religion.
Among Steve’s many terrific books are:
- The Disenchantment of Secular Discourse (HUP 2010)
- Law’s Quandary (HUP 2004)
- The Constitution and the Pride of Reason (OUP 1998)
- Foreordained Failure: The Quest for a Constitutional Principle of Religious Liberty (OUP 1995)
A very warm welcome to Steve!
