Here Andrew Carnegie tells us wealth will bind us together in brotherhood, Susan B. Anthony examines social purity, and Billy Sunday takes a swing at demon rum. Baker (history, Western Kentucky U.) continues his series of primary documents, that range from the golden age of the robber barons to American religion's most recent controversies, delineating the effect of the new industrial identity and ongoing crisis in religious identity, revivalism, the contributions to civil rights of religious leaders and institutions, and the religious side of Manifest Destiny through twentieth-century war. He examines the rise of fundamentalism in politics and the role of religion in litigation, closing with an article on post-Shoah Jewish theology in America.
