The Christian Right, the Far Right and the Boundaries of American Conservatism
Manchester University Press, 2000 - 204 pagina's
This is a broad-based study of all aspects of right-wing politics in the US, with a particular focus on two overlapping groups--the Christian Right and the Radical Right. The American Right has attracted a remarkable amount of attention in recent years. The Christian Right has become a major part of the Republican Party, conservative Pat Buchanan has launched three bids for the party's presidential nomination, and the militias have drawn thousands of Americans into a movement which believes the country is threatened by an international conspiracy. This study challenges the ways in which these developments have been seen and argues for a fresh look at the movements to the right of the mainstream conservatism.
