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.

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.
