Summary
  • Faith in Schools?" is a forceful and well-argued contribution to the debate on the place of autonomy both in liberal-democratic schooling and in liberal political theory. The argument is novel, and the author's vigorous defense of the instrumental value of autonomy marks off a controversial position that will prompt a good deal of debate."--Lucas Swaine, author of "The Liberal Conscience: Politics and Principle in a World of Religious Pluralism"
  • "This is an impressive book on the political-moral grounds for the regulation and sponsorship of religious schools. Anglo-American political theory has in recent years witnessed a revival of interest in questions about civic education and identity-formation, and Ian MacMullen makes an important contribution to this burgeoning field."--Eamonn Callan, author of "Creating Citizens: Political Education and Liberal Democracy
