Religion and American Politics

From the Colonial Period to the Present

Second Edition

Edited by Mark A. Noll and Luke E. Harlow

This collection, which includes revisions of the original essays as well as entirely new material, presents works by seventeen of America's leading historians and social scientists, including John Murrin, Harry Stout, John F. Wilson, Daniel Walker Howe, Bertram Wyatt-Brown, Robert Swierenga, Martin Mary, Robert Wuthnow, and George Marsden . Together, these distinguished contributors provide comprehensive coverage of the historical interaction between religion and politics in America, from the colonial and Revolutionary periods, with intense commitments to and disagreements over religion, through the evangelical Protestant ascendency that marked the nineteenth century, to the growing pluralism and heightened antagonism between liberal and conservative factions that typify our own era.
