American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America
A startling and terrifying expose of the political ambitions of the Christian Right in America – and a clarion call for everyone who cares about freedom.
They disseminate their ideas on the alternative broadcast networks and through their own publishers and schools. Their intellectual leaders demand the complete dismantling of the secular state; their followers have been roused to a fever pitch of resentment and despair. Describing themselves as true patriots they wrap themselves in the flag – but all it might take, veteran journalist Chris Hedges, is one more national crisis of the order of September 11 for the Christian Right to seize power and reveal themselves for what they really are – the American heirs to Fascism.
With step-by-step breakdown of how they started and where they are, Hedges conducts brilliant on-the-ground reporting and produces a deeply compelling work of cultural and political anthropology and an impassioned, no-holds barred polemic.
Condition: Good. A book that has been read but is in good condition. No obvious damage to the book cover. No highlighting of text, no writing in the margins, and no missing pages.
