Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"From the Salem witch trials to the Evil Empire, from Cotton Mather to Pat Robertson, Fuller traces a succession of zealots ready to defend Christian civilization against evil incarnate."--The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Make[s] for lively reading. A book that makes familiar concepts disturbingly fresh and provocative."--The New York Times

"A reliable guide not only to the religious past but to the nation's increasingly manic embrace of the Antichrist myth as the end of the millennium draws near."--John Corrigan, Professor and Chair, American Studies, Arizona State University West

"An intelligent history of how Americans have tended to see the world as the battleground between absolute good and absolute evil....A fascinating and well-written account."--Kirkus Reviews

"A valuable addition to a growing body of literature, that attempts to make cultural sense of a deep and seemingly irrational strain in modern American culture."--Peter Williams, Miami University, Professor of Religion
