As the 20th Century draws to a close, cultural conflict plays an increasingly dominant role in American politics, with religion acting as a catalyst in the often bitter confrontations ranging from abortion to public education. These insightful essays by leading scholars in the field examine the role of religion in these 'culture wars' and present a mixed assessment of the scope and divisiveness of such conflicts.

Review:

. . . a judicious blend of previously published materials and new scholarship, a book that will convince even the most skeptical observer that religion matters―and matters deeply―in American political attitudes and behaviorrrrr (Ken Wald, University of Florida)

The scholarship displayed in this diverse collection of essays is first-rate, accessible to the general reader and sufficiently detailed enough to provide insight and testable hypotheses for researchers in this field. (Thomas Dowdy, Oklahoma Baptist University)

An essential guide to the full comprehension of the multifaceted nature of Americans' political beliefs. (American Political Science Review)

provides a rich resource for other scholars to mine and build a richer understanding of the phenomenon of the religious right than one can gain from journalists and scholars without the familiarity and research skills of the "gang of four." (Dennis McNutt Pneuma: The Journal Of The Society For Pentacostal Studies)

. . . a rich collection of essays tracing the influence of religion in American political life at the end of the Twentieth Century. The Gang of Four like the esteemed householder of the Gospel parable, has brought from its treasury both the new and theold. (Clarke E. Cochran, Texas Tech University)
