- The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Religion and Politics in the U.S. provides an accessible, balanced, and inclusive overview of the field, which counters the overly simplified and often misguided treatment of the subject in popular discourse and media. Taking into account the very latest research on the intersection of these areas of study, the companion engages diverse perspectives from various discourses about religion and politics across the political and disciplinary spectra, while placing them in their larger historical context. --
Under the editorship of Barbara A. McGraw, the companion provides a fascinating mix of original essays by interdisciplinary expert scholars, who address religion and politics through the themes of history, law, social and religious movements, policy, and political theory. The contributors provide a broad range of perspectives, resulting in a rich foundation for discussion, while avoiding the tendency to retreat to a dominant narrative or to divide into conservative or liberal camps. --
