campaign. They show how the "Born Again Christian" fad of the late 70's and 80's can and does destroy lives, as well as their twisting rhetoric used in their attacks on the "evil forces of the left", including such dangerous ideas as Evolution, welfare, free speech, and equal rights.
It does have a few flaws, the main one being the lack of explanation of "Indirect Propaganda", but largely Siegalman and Conway paint an exellent and highly researched portrait of the Fundamentalist movement. This book is a gold mine for anyone looking for dirt on this so-called grassroots effort (with gobs of liquid cash and election tactics) and their role in a possible future.
