Secularism and State Policies towards Religion: The United States, France, and Turkey

The relationship between the state and religion, or the question of secularism, has always been one of the most hotly debated issues in Turkish politics, even more so since the rise of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) to power in 2002. Professor Ahmet T. Kuru, currently teaching at San Diego State University in the USA, has recently made a rich contribution to this debate. His book, published by the prestigious Cambridge University Press, is entitled Secularism and State Policies toward Religion: The United States, France, and Turkey (xvii+ 313 pages). As its sub-title indicates, the book is essentially a comparative study of secularism in the United States, France, and Turkey.
