Essays discuss discrimination against religious groups in America, including in education, the military, and society.

Book News
Like others in the "At Issue" series, this collection of previously published articles presents a variety of perspectives relevant to a particular topic, for student researchers at the high school level and above. Thirteen articles focus on how various religious groups feel their religion is accepted--or not--in American society. The selections address perceptions of whether or not there is discrimination in the forms of anti-Christian bias in schools, anti-Semitism in campus, "religious intrusion" that should be regulated by law, appropriate expression of religion in the US military, discrimination against Muslims, discrimination against Islamic women by feminism, and discrimination against Hare Krishnas. One of the final chapters comments on the divisiveness of homosexuality within the US Episcopalian church. A brief bibliography and a list of organizations offer resources for further research.
