Reviews

'When morality slips in the American presidency, the religion factor inevitably kicks in. The editors of this readable volume assemble a wide-range of talented historians and social scientists to assess this issue in the presidency of George W. Bush. The empirical data sets the standard for serious discussion of religion in contemporary America. Highly recommended.' - William D. Pederson, American Studies Endowed Chair, Louisiana State University in Shreveport'The Politics of the Bush Era cannot be understood without a thorough understanding of the place religion plays in our culture, how it drives voter behavior, and how it informs the administration. Much heat has been generated over the topic, but Rozell and Whitney bring valuable light to the major divisions in our culture and the most interesting policies of the last few years in Washington.'

- Gary L. Gregg II, Ph.D., Mitch McConnell Chair in Leadership, University of Louisville
