From Library Journal: This collection of essays on interreligious antagonism in the United States covers Jewish/Christian, Protestant/Catholic, and Liberal/Conservative tensions, with contributions by representatives from all sides. Two excellent articles on cults and their relationship to the established religions in America are also included. The collection ably demonstrates that while interreligious hostility may have undergone superficial change in recent years, the underlying reality remains. In his conclusion Bellah draws on all the essays to demonstrate how important religion still is in defining identity and marking personal and collective boundaries. An excellent and thought-provoking collection by experts in sociology and religion, recommended for large public and academic libraries. C. Robert Nixon, M.L.S., W.
