Religion and American Politics

Robert Wuthnow

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a far-ranging general account of religion and politics since World War II. It explores the hidden chasm stretching across the contemporary religious landscape, a chasm not between denominations but between more basic attitudes concerning the place of religion in both private and public life. The discussion describes the development of the new divide with respect to religious divisions, but also with respect to fundamental recent changes in American society and political expectations.

Keywords:   World War II, religious divisions, American society, Christianity, Holocaust
