Religion and Politics in the United States
This evenhanded guide -- recognized as the leader in its field -- is a comprehensive and compelling exploration of the impact of religion at the ballot box and on the framing of national agendas. In this new edition, Wald incorporates such contemporary social issues as: the abortion debate; the rise of domestic religious terrorism: and controversies over recent Supreme Court decisions that have spawned new laws, such as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and proposals for constitutional amendments.
