Persecution, Toleration, and the Rise of Modernity: An Interview with Historian Mark Koyama

Religious freedom is a core value of the modern West, but how did it emerge, and why does it matter? Economic historian Mark Koyama, of George Mason University, joins me to discuss his recent book (co-authored with Noel Johnson), Persecution and Toleration: The Long Road to Religious Freedom.

Check out the book here, and follow Professor Koyama on Twitter @MarkKoyama.
