Synopsis:

Religious fundamentalism and it's role in US foreign policy is seemingly unstoppable. In For God's Sake, Lee Marsden argues that the religious "core values" of middle America have potentially disastrous consequences for the United States and the world in the coming century. Marsden looks at how the religious right has gained its influence with America's powerful elite through campaign contributions, lobbying and policy-making. He also claims that it is through a much wider program of popular media campaigns that the Christian right has entrenched its values in much of American society. Finally, For God's Sake considers the negative impact which this influence is having on the environment, democracy and human rights.

About the Author: Lee Marsden is a Lecturer in Politics at the University of East Anglia. His research interests include US foreign policy, democratization and the increasing influence of religion in international relations. Before entering academia Marsden was an ordained minister in the Word of Faith movement. He has published several articles on human rights in the Middle East and relations between the Muslim world and the West. He is the author of Lessons from Russia:  Clinton and US Democracy Promotion (2005).

Religious fundamentalism is a powerful force not only in American domestic politics but also in the way America acts abroad. In For God s Sake Lee Marsden investigates the way that the Christian Right have influenced US foreign policy, arguing that this influence will continue to fuel hostility against the country for many years to come.
