Politics, Religion, and Freedom

Andrew Copson

  • Traces the history of secularism from the eighteenth century to the present day
  • Examines the deep tensions a secular state faces from resurgent religious identity politics, and those a religious state faces from insurgent secularists
  • Considers how secularism connects with contentious issues such as blasphemy, religious persecution, religious discrimination, and freedom of belief
