The sacred texts and legal traditions of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have contributed much to the cultivation and violation of religious human rights around the world - particularly of women, children, and dissidents. In the first volume, Desmond Tutu, Martin Marty, and 20 leading scholars offer an authoritative assessment of these contributions, and challenge peoples of all faiths to adopt ""golden rules of religious liberty"".;The second volume concentrates on this ""Dickensian century"" of human rights, the world has cultivated the best of religious rights protections, but witnessed the worst of religious rights abuses. In this volume, a score of leading jurists assess critically and comparatively the religious rights laws and practices of the international community and of selected states in the Atlantic continents.;The volumes are products of an ongoing project on religion, human rights and democracy undertaken by the Law and Religion Program at Emory University.
