Katherine Stewart shows that the real power of the American religious right lies in a dense network of think tanks, policy and legal advocacy groups, and pastoral organizations, embedded in a growing network of international alliances with like-minded religious nationalists around the world. The Power Worshippers is a brilliantly reported book of warning and a wake-up call.
