Ian Bartrum (UNLV Law) has posted a very generous review (forthcoming in the Journal of Church and State) of The Tragedy of Religious Freedom. I wish I could say that I disagreed with the sharp and smart criticisms of the book in Ian’s review; but actually, I found myself quite in agreement with them. Still, I hope you will forgive me for quoting from a not-so-critical section:
DeGirolami’s is a thoughtful and sophisticated meditation on the protean relationship between law and faith in a society committed to religious freedom. His intellectual and cultural influences are broad and rewarding; his style is rich and accessible; and his critique of both theoretical foundationalism and skepticism is profound and compelling. The Tragedy of Religious Freedom is an important book that will undoubtedly influence and enrich this discussion for years to come.
