Christian Nationalism in the United States
By Andrew L. Whitehead and Samuel L. Perry
Why do many Americans advocate so vehemently for xenophobic policies, such as a border wall with Mexico? Why do many Americans seem so unwilling to acknowledge the injustices that ethnic and racial minorities experience in the United States? Why do a sizable proportion of Americans continue to oppose women's equality in the workplace and in the home?
To answer these questions are authors Ph.D. Andrew Whitehead an Associate Professor of Sociology at IUPUI and Ph.D Samuel Perry an Associate Professor Sociologist of American Issues at OU. They draw on multiple sources to document how Christian nationalism shapes what Americans think about who they are as a people, what their future should look like, and how they should get there.
Taking America Back for God is a guide to one of the most important-and least understood-forces shaping American politics.
