The Tragedy of Religious Freedom: Available Now

I'm pleased to announce that my new book, The Tragedy of Religious Freedom, is now available for The Tragedy of Religious Freedom purchase from Amazon (official publication date is June 1). Here is Harvard University Press's page for it. The book is specifically about the First Amendment religion clauses but it also involves more general questions about the relationship of legal theory and legal practice, and the tasks that legal scholars set for themselves. I hope that it will appeal to folks interested in those rangier questions as well as to readers with particular interests in religious freedom and conflicts among civil rights.

Here are the blurbs on the jacket:

The Tragedy of Religious Freedom is a first-rate contribution to the law-and-religion conversation. This conversation—how to think about, and how to effectively protect in law, religious freedom in a constitutional democracy—is a lively and timely one, and DeGirolami is an impressive participant.”—Richard W. Garnett, Notre Dame Law School

“A sophisticated and thoughtful book, which offers fresh insights on a central question of religious liberty.”—Philip Hamburger, author of Separation of Church and State

It's a wonderful time of ferment and new thought in law and religion scholarship. I'm delighted (and lucky) to be able to participate in this work.

Thanks, all. Orly, sounds very interesting. Adam, Loyola LA doesn't know yet just what a great person it is getting, but it will soon. I'll miss you.
