Abstract

The place of religion in society and modernity is among the most contentious political issues in the first decade of the 21st century. Faith has been remarkably resilient and resurgent in the face of the secularisation that has characterised Western liberal democracies since the Enlightenment. This heightened sensitivity to and significance of the relationships between religion and politics make Neil Addison's attention to the way that law regulates religious discrimination and hatred a timely contribution. This review looks at the ways Addison's Religious Discrimination and Hatred Law (2007) addresses these aspects of law and religion in Britain.

Keywords: law, religion, discrimination, hatred
