"Consistently interesting, often challenging, and at times brilliant, this book is a fantastically rich intellectual achievement. Jacobsohn's nuanced argument that commitments to secularism must be understood as contextual is original and highly illuminating, as is his elaboration of distinctions between different forms of secularism and between the thickness or thinness of different dominant religions insofar as this relates to the state's official posture about favored religions and religious freedom."--Vicki C. Jackson, Georgetown University Law School "One of a handful of studies that looks at law as the medium through which the project of secularization is carried out,The Wheel of Lawis the first major book-length study of Indian secularism and the law since the sixties. Careful, meticulous, admirably unbullying, and impressive in its range of reference, it is also the only comparative study of constitutionalism in India, the United States, and Israel."--Pratap Bhanu Mehta, Jawaharlal Nehru UniversityJacobsohn, Gary is the author of 'Wheel of Law India's Secularism in Comparative Constitutional Context', published 2005 under ISBN 9780691122533 and ISBN 0691122539.
