    Research Handbook on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Law and Religion

    Edited by Russell Sandberg, Norman Doe, Bronach Kane, Caroline Roberts

This Research Handbook assists by providing introductory but provocative essays from experts on a range of concepts, perspectives and theories from other disciplines, which can be used to further Law and Religion scholarship.
