Separation of Church and State by Philip Hamburger
Book DescriptionIn a powerful challenge to conventional wisdom, Philip Hamburger argues that the separation of church and state has no historical foundation. The detailed evidence assembled here shows that eighteenth-century Americans almost never invoked this principle. Although Thomas Jefferson and others retrospectively claimed that the First Amendment separated church and state, separation became part of American constitutional law only much later.
