Overview

God at the Grass Roots, 1996 is composed of entirely new and original essays that analyze the impact of the Christian Right in the 1996 national, state, and local elections. The nation's leading scholars of religion and politics identify and illuminate numerous trends that have dramatically evolved since the landmark elections of 1994. More than simply a revised version of the popular "God at the Grass Roots", this fundamentally new edition examines the Christian Right's nationwide influence, and the essays arrive at starkly different conclusions about America's most organized and observed political interest group. This text will complement all courses on parties and elections, and religion and politics.

Author Biography: Mark J. Rozell is associate professor of political science at The American University in Washington, D.C. Clyde Wilcox is professor of government at Georgetown University. Both have written several books on religion and politics.

Perspective On Political Science, Winter 99, Vol. 28, No.1 - Ted G. Jelen
Rozell and Wilcox have provided a excellent set of case studies that demonstrate both the power and the limitations of religious conservatism in American politics. The main strength of the book is its detailed insider's view of state politics.
