Call for Papers: Religion and Law: A Dictionary

Grey House Publishing seeks an author to update and expand Religion and Law: A Dictionary.

I’m a project editor at Grey House Publishing, and I’m looking for a legal scholar with a knack for clarity who might be interested in taking on a book project. We want to release an updated edition of an existing reference work called Religion and Law: A Dictionary. The prior edition (2009) was well-received and is an excellent book in its class. http://www.greyhouse.com/pdf/rellaw_rev.pdf.

The dictionary in its current incarnation has 288 entries, and we’d like to enlarge it. You would be listed as co-author with the original author. Details to be discussed.

Email Dewayne Dean at ddean@greyhouse.com for more information.
