From the Publisher:
Explores the political ambitions of the Christian right, discussing how their agenda gained momentum through alternative networks, schools, and publishers, and warns that another national crisis may enable the Christian right to seize political power.
Annotation:
Chris Hedges examines the rise of the Christian Right in America, focusing on how, through energetic and savagely focused campaigns marked by an adept use of the media, the right has greatly increased its voice and influence in American politics and everyday life. Drawing explicit parallels between the Religious Right and rise of fascism in Europe, Hedges is concerned that a national emergency might trigger events that could bring the Christian Right to power.

Praise

"Scores of volumes about the religious right have recently been published..., but Hedges' book is perhaps the most furious and foreboding, all the more so because he knows what fascism looks like....Hedges is unabashed and unsparing. His rage and contempt for the movement's leaders, though, is matched by sympathy for its followers, because he understands the despair, the desperate longing for community and even the idealism that often drives them." - Michelle Goldberg 01/08/2007
