Secularism: Politics, Religion, and Freedom, by Andrew Copson (New York: Oxford University Press, 2017, ISBN 978-0-19-880913-5) 176 pp. Hardcover, $18.95.
Numerous books offer an introduction to humanism. Many more acquaint the reader with naturalism. There’s an absolute torrent of “primers" on atheism. But secularism? Despite its importance, books delivering a concise, objective introduction to the topic of secularism are rare. Andrew Copson’s short, engaging, impartial introduction thus fills a genuine void in the literature, and it does so impressively.
