Religion in Twentieth Century America

Randall Herbert Balmer, Author Oxford University Press, USA $31.95 (144p) ISBN 978-0-19-511295-5
During the last two years, Oxford has quietly released a series that, while aimed at high school students, offers the best primers available for anyone who is interested in American religious history. The strategy has been to find top scholars on each topic Native American religions, women's religious history, Islam in America, etc. and have them write as accessibly as possible. To installments by such authors as Jon Butler, Richard and Claudia Bushman, Albert Raboteau and Edwin Gaustad, Oxford now adds volumes by Randall Balmer (Religion in Twentieth Century America) and Jenna Weissman Joselit (Immigration and American Religion). Photographs and illustrations, explanatory sidebars and literary excerpts make the books entertaining as well as informative. (May)
