This book traces the history of public school prayer in America and the legal debates since the 1962 Supreme Court ruling that outlawed the practice. The author does not attempt to answer the related ethical and political questions for her readers, but rather makes available the historical and legal information from which readers can draw their own conclusions about this sensitive issue.
