Religion, Culture, and the State
presents a clear and coherent approach to "reasonable accommodation," secularism, and multiethnic diversity in Québec. It represents a major contribution to research in this area, and is significant for its comparative perspective, as reflected in the interesting connections that the contributors make to liberal and multicultural frameworks in France. The socio-historical and intellectual context that Howard Adelman and Pierre Anctil provide for these debates also makes Religion, Culture, and the State
worthwhile reading. (Donna Patrick, Department of Sociology and Anthropology and School of Canadian Studies, Carleton University)
