Howard Hunter and Polly Price examine the components of the US legal system that affect proselytism, focusing on the contradictions between the constitutional protection of religious freedom and legal constraints on proselytism. Hunter and Price comprehensively review the regulation of proselytism in both public and private spaces in the United States, analyze the justifications for these regulations, and suggest probable future issues of debate regarding religious freedom. Additionally, Hunter and Price argue that the regulation of proselytism has led to a failure to protect religious minorities, and in some cases contributed to their persecution.
