Pressestimmen"[T]houghtful... Levinson's quiet insistence on bringing religion into our definition of diversity is a critical gesture that is particularly welcome coming from a legal scholar. For, as the recent Supreme Court decision regarding affirmative action made clear, the definition of such ambiguous terms will ultimately be codified in the courtroom."--Publishers Weekly "[H]ighly engaging, beautifully written, and provocative ...This volume contributes importantly to the struggle to understand more fully the many complexities, subtleties, and nuances of the contemporary world that we all inhabit... [A] model inspication."--Mark Kessler, Law and Politics Book Review "[E]loquent... Levinson contributes greatly to the debate. Highly recommended."--M.W. Bowers, CHOICE "The essays in this book are thoughtful and engaging and demonstrate both the complexity and importance of the concept of diversity and the challenges and opportunities it presents for those committed to the establishment and preservation of a just and stable multicultural liberal democracy."--Shaun P. Young, Ethics
