From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: Fresh with new insights, issues, and developments, this intriguing book offers a sound analysis of religion as a social institution that is interdependent and in constant interaction with other societal units. Objective in approach, it shows readers the importance of chronicling and analyzing the actions and reactions surrounding religion and society in our endeavor to understand how societies function and change. Key Topics: Emphasizes American religious institutions, but includes many examples of the interaction of religion and society in other cultures, both historic and contemporary. It also applies the perspective of church-sect theory to an analysis of recent cult groups, such as the Peoples Temple and the Branch Davidians. Highlights include a new chapter on the rise of religious fundamentalism in its Christian, Jewish, and Islamic forms; and analysis of current issues in religion and politics, i.e., Protestant and Catholic voting patterns, the abortion controversy, school prayer issues, and recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings.
