American Covenant:
A History of Civil Religion from the Puritans to the Present
Philip Gorski

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Philip Gorski's stimulating and original history of civil religion restarts a conversation begun by Robert Bellah at the height of the American involvement in Vietnam. It is a vital conversation again in the contemporary United States and Gorski offers a compelling vision of a patriotism that steers between a belligerent nationalism and a dismissal of all religious contributions. It's a learned and even necessary book."--John T. McGreevy, author of American Jesuits and the World

"Philip Gorski practices sociology in the grand tradition. American Covenant will be read and debated for decades to come. And it comes at just the right moment."--Alan Wolfe, Boston College

"This engaging and ambitious book offers a sobering analysis that at the same time suggests hope for moving past the malignant divisiveness with which our nation is currently afflicted."--Robert Wuthnow, author of In the Blood: Understanding America's Farm Families

"Gorski provides a deep intellectual backdrop to the political mess we find ourselves in today."--John Durham Peters, author of The Marvelous Clouds: Toward a Philosophy of Elemental Media
