With everything from health insurance mandates to censored high school graduation speeches, many today feel that religious freedom is under serious—perhaps unprecedented—threat. What should we do when a law or government action, often not intended to inhibit religious exercise, nevertheless does? How can we maximize harmony between religious and nonreligious Americans? Deep Commitments energetically responds to these questions, with essays that address the history and philosophy of religious freedom, the role of religion in public education, and the current controversies over religious freedom and public accommodations.

In Perilous Partners, Ted Galen Carpenter and Malou Innocent provide a strategy for resolving the ethical dilemmas between interests and values faced by Washington – a roadmap for conducting an effective U.S. foreign policy without betraying fundamental American values.
