"As an exercise in comparing European and International legal struggles in religious liberty, Taylor's book is worth reading."
-- The Law and Politics Book Review, Stephen McDougal, University of Wisconsin-La CrosseSee more reviews
"...highly technical and very thorough examination of the law of religious freedom as it has developed in the UN and European Union...it is a treasure trove...Taylor has written a detailed, exhaustive treatment of two different human rights system (UN and Europe) in light of their success or failure in securing religious freedom. It is a work that repays reading and reflection, at least by human rights lawyers."
--William L. Saunders, JR., Senior Fellow in Bioethics and Human Rights Counsel, Family Research Council, Touchstone (January/ebruary 2009)
