Abstract:

"Like a zoologist tracking rare animals, Boston has spent twelve years following the Religious Right "in the field." He has attended meetings and conferences of devotees, toured headquarters of Religious Right organizations, and debated group leaders in the media. Now, in Close Encounters with the Religious Right, he offers revealing insights about its message and intentions, illustrating why the next few years could determine the fate of traditional American liberties such as separation of church and state, privacy rights, and religious liberty."--Jacket.
