About the book:

Covering such current issues as the rise of the Right, US intervention in Third World politics, feminism and satellite broadcasting, this is an investigative analysis of the power and the aspirations of the Christian Right, from its control of a multibillion dollar braodcasting industry to its counterinsurgent "missionary" work in the developing world. Sara Diamond identifies the propagandists, the fundraisers and the "freedom fighters" who aid and abet the most regressive US government policies. She exposes Christian Right activism in the Republican Party and demonstrates the calculated political operations of the movement - mobilization of anti-feminist women, efforts to delegitimize progressive Christianity and sponsorship of "low intensity conflict" projects in Central America, Southern Africa and the Philippines. The book is based on extensive first-hand research, which involved hundreds of interviews, attendance at Evangelical meetings and more than ten years of monitoring religious broadcasting.
