Today, with all of the controversies surrounding religion in the schools and in the public sphere, it would seem more important than ever that teachers and librarians have a quick source to up to date, correct, unbiased information to give to patrons and students. The authors of this book (all are or have been professors of religion at various well known universities) will do just that. The book is arranged to cover most all of the known (and little known) religions in America. Each section covers topics: Origins, Beliefs, Sacred Book/Scriptures, Practices, Main Subgroups, Common Misunderstandings and Stereotypes, Classroom Concerns, Population Data and Further Readings. Though there are many guides to religions, this book has the unique niche of looking at each religion as it may affect the classroom and other student groups-thus its appeal to public and school libraries as well as classroom teachers and other youth leaders.

BENJAMIN J. HUBBARD ( Ph.D., University of Iowa) is professor emeritus of comparative religion at California State University, Fullerton where he was department chair for 15 years. He has been a frequent contributor on religion-related issues to the Los Angeles Times/Orange County and the Orange County Register. His specialties include Judaic studies, the interfaith movement, and religion and media studies.

JOHN T. HATFIELD (Ph.D., Claremont Graduate University) is professor emeritus of Ethnic and Women's' Studies at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. He is a past president of the American Academy of Religion's Western Region and of the Far Western Philosophy of Religion Society. His special interests include Native American religion, and religion and pubic education.

JAMES A. SANTUCCI (Ph.D., Australian National University) is professor and chair of the Department of Comparative Religion, California State University, Fullerton. For nearly 20 years he has edited the journal Theosophical History. He is an expert on Theosophy and other non-traditional religious movements, as well as the religions of South Asia (Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism).
