Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Religion, Secular Beliefs and Human Rights: 25 Years after the 1981 Declaration contains the table of contents, foreword and preface. A major political confrontation between Western and Communist countries was avoided by inserting "belief" after "religion". The terms are intended to refer to both theistic views of the universe, as well as atheistic, agnostic, rationalistic, and other views excluding religion and religious norms. In the book, the author has preceded the word "religion" with the adjective "secular", intended to point out that the reference is to non-religious beliefs concerning religion.

Keywords: religious human rights; secular beliefs
