(Despite the overwrought title it is an excellent book on the Religious Right and the Conservative movement in the US over the last 60 years or so. A good introduction to the various issues which are of concern to the Right. And does a decent job showing the evolution of the Republican party as it descends into a party for the Extreme Right and away from traditional American conservatism.)
