American Civil Religion
A Fortress Press ETextbookeBook - 2012
"Fortress Press's first original eTextbook traces the intersection of religion, politics, and society with a focus on civil religion as a long-standing and still relevant aspect of American culture. Tracing the contemporary landscape in America, this work also reveals how deeply rooted this kind of religious culture is in American history. The book explores central myths and rituals of American political and religious culture and shows the cultural challenges to come. Planned dynamic elements include: primary sources, such as the Declaration of Independence; video clips including presidential addresses and campaign speeches: audio files of important music, including "America the Beautiful" and "Born in the U.S.A"; plus other links."-- Provided by publisher.
