The Fundamentalist Challenge to the Modern World

Photographs by Micah Marty

"Something rare: a fair-minded assessment of religious fundamentalism. In this companion volume to a three-part PBS series, Marty and Appleby aim to dissipate the fog of ignorance that surrounds the average understanding of fundamentalism.. . . A useful guide to what is proving to be . . . a historical movement at least as important as Marxist-Leninism."
