Editorial Reviews


An excellent introduction to the major movements in modern American religion.

(Matthew A. Sutton H-Amstdy)

Hulsether deserves a great credit for writing a cultural studies-inspired textbook... that is clearly written with well-defined terms.

(Stone-Campbell Journal 1900-01-00)

Hulsether guides readers on an impressionistic journey across the twentieth-century landscape.

(Charles H. Lippy Journal of American History 1900-01-00)

Hulsether is a skilled guide who knows the rough terrain well, and he is able to point out interesting features along the path. For those interested in religion as culture in America, this is a worthwhile read.

(International Journal of Communication 1900-01-00)


Religion, Culture, and Politics in the Twentieth-Century United States is comprehensive but also offers compelling case studies that illustrate the peculiar dynamics of twentieth-century America, integrating economics, race relations, popular culture, and other critical social forces into the story. It will immediately stand out as a culturally informed, politically astute, alternative guide to religion in contemporary America.

(Gary Laderman, professor of American religious history and cultures, Emory University)
