This timely work presents an unbiased examination of the religious right and its role in American life. From the fight to outlaw the teaching of Darwin's theory of evolution to the struggle to outlaw abortion, the religious right is continually exerting an influence on public policy. This book explores the influence of religion on legislation and society, while examining the alignment of the religious right with the political right. A historical survey of the movement highlights the shift to a "hands-on" approach to politics and the struggle to present a unified front. Biographies of the men and women who have defined the movement and a detailed chronology provide a thorough understanding of the movement's agenda and goals. Annotated listings of print and nonprint resources, as well as of organizations affiliated with the religious right and those opposing it, aid in further research. Comprehensive in its scope, this work offers easy-to-read, pertinent information for those seeking to understand the religious right and its evolving role in American society.
