Overview

The "religious right" is a label that encompasses groups as diverse as mainline and evangelical Protestants, conservative Jews, and Catholics. What prompted these movements to begin? Although there has never been an absolute wall between church and state in the United States—a generation before the Civil War, churches already clashed over slavery—the movement has mostly developed since World War II. This book describes the developing intimacy between the current Religious Right and conservative Republicans.

This second edition of The Religious Right includes an up to date chronology, new biographical sketches, a survey of conservative Christian attitudes, directories of organizations both critical and supportive of the Religious Right, and a 150 page annotated bibliography including radio and TV programs.
