The Evolution of Atheism

The Politics of a Modern Movement

Stephen LeDrew

  • Argues that the New Atheism has parallels with religious fundamentalism
  • Shows that divisions among atheists threaten to fracture the movement
  • Rejects the widely accepted understanding of contemporary atheism as grounded in liberalism, instead arguing for the existence of an "atheist Right" that mirrors the Christian Right
  • Contributes to ongoing public debates about the role of religion in public life and in politics
