Summary

God at the Grass Roots, 1996 is composed of entirely new and original essays that analyze the impact of the Christian Right in the 1996 national, state, and local elections. The nation's leading scholars of religion and politics identify and illuminate numerous trends that have dramatically evolved since the landmark elections of 1994. More than simply a revised version of the popular God at the Grass Roots, this fundamentally new edition examines the Christian Right's nationwide influence, and the essays arrive at starkly different conclusions about America's most organized and observed political interest group. This text will complement all courses on parties and elections, and religion and politics.
