Description/Summary

Patricia Behre is a contributing author "Religious Persecution".

Book Description: Through waves of new immigration, and the social influence of 60s counterculture, the United States has seen an explosion in the variety of religious practice since about 1965. This 2 volume work lets students, researchers, and general readers explore American religion in all its diversity. In addition to profiling religious groups from the modern forms of Catholicism and Judaism to some of the more-extreme cults such as Heaven's Gate and the Branch Davidians, the set includes articles on cultural, social, and legal issues, as well as holidays and celebrations, the arts, and more.
