Abstract: Publisher's decription: This resource book studies the role of religion in public life by examining the French Republican model of assimilation. It features a thoughtful essay that provides critical background to France’s national debate over the veil as a declaration of religious practice. It offers a rich text comprised of meaningful readings to encourage classroom discussion. This book uses a national debate as a way to develop an educational framework for integration, tolerance, and cultural acceptance.
