The Family: Power, Politics and Fundamentalism's Shadow Elite
"The Family is a story about American fundamentalism, but the territory it covers is as vast as the ambitions of American empire, ranging from The Family's roots in the ruins of postwar Germany to East Timor, where The Family helped Indonesian dictator Suharto pursue genocide, to Africa, where The Family's missionaries served as handmaidens to post-colonial carnage in Somalia, Ethiopia, South Africa, and other nations. The nihilistic theology by which American fundamentalism pursues power, is not a retreat into tradition, but a new ideology with old roots. The Family is a groundbreaking examination of this new faith and where it came from, by one of the foremost authorities on Christian fundamentalism in politics."--Provided by publisher.
