Overview

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Connell seems to have unearthed every possible work and author relating to political economy, popular education, and religious politics; the result is a rich, dense, and convincing study that deconstructs pieties of the scholarly left and right. . . . His book is persuasive because it is thick with evidence and always interested in exploring the larger implications of the subtle shades of opinion he finds in the printed discussions of the era. . . . [An] immensely learned and scholarly work"—College Literature
