First published in 1993 this volume is an extension and revision of the 1986 book entitled Religious Schools in America: A Selected Bibliography. This new version contains additional annotated bibliographies of the various denominational schools as well as discussing governmental relation to each setting in the years from 1985 to 1992. This version also covers Greek Orthodox and Muslim schools that were not part of the previous volume and includes a chapter on the growth of home schooling which is often influenced by religion. Finally, unlike the previous edition, this book only considers religious schools, rather than the religious aspect or function of public schooling.
Each section includes a short chapter followed by an extensive annotated bibliography making it a useful source for anyone looking for information in the area.
