Pressestimmen"Essential for serious academic collections." --Scott H. Silverman, Bryn Mawr College, Library Journal, 1/15/2007 "This collection of essays is a valuable contribution to the conversation concerning the notion of culture war in the United States. It would be useful as a text for a graduate seminar dealing with the religion and society of culture and politics." -- Journal of Church and State, 5/1/2007 "Two important essays focus on the existence or nonexistence of a culture war...Comments on the essays from historian Gertrude Himmelfarb and political scientist Morris P. Fiorina, and additional responses from Hunter and Wolfe, provide a rich debate. Highly recommended." -- CHOICE, 6/1/2007
