Timely and unbiased, this new, fourth edition of The Religious Right & American Politics, formerly titled The Religious Right: A Reference Handbook , explores the influence of religion on legislation and society, while examining the alignment of the religious right with the political right. From the fight to outlaw the teaching of Darwin’s theory of evolution to the current debate about abortion rights and gay and lesbian rights, the religious right is continually exerting an influence on public policy. This volume offers a critical historical survey of the religious right movement, focusing on its increased involvement in the political arena, attempts to forge coalitions, and notable success and failures.
