From Library Journal
The growing influence of religious conservatives on American politics and culture has surprised many academics. The essays in this anthology explore the institutional structures of the religious right and the ideology being engendered through them, focusing on the highly effective use of television, radio, and video to communicate the conservative Christian message. Contributors to this volume include academics, graduate students, and activists who do not share the world view of the religious right but who hope to provide resources for those liberals and feminists engaged in countering the right's political influence. An overview of American Protestant religious culture provides the background for chapters dealing with specifics such as the emergence of Christian video, or the use of alternative information networks. The essay quality is uneven, and academic jargon is the order of the day. Academic libraries may be interested in acquiring this book.?Judy Solberg, George Washington Univ., Takoma Park, Md.
