Religious Outsiders and the Making of Americans

R. Laurence Moore

Examining seven influential groups of religious "outsiders"--Mormons, Catholics, Jews, Christian Scientists, Millennilasts, 20th-century Protestant Fundamentalists, and African-American churches-- this book finds that, despite the American ideal of religious tolerance, our nation has long shown suspicion and hostility to many of these groups even though they embody quintessentially American values.
