About the book:

'The most comprehensive treatment available, SPIRITUAL WARFARE exposes the enduring political clout of the Christian Right, from its control of a multibillion dollar broadcast industry to its counterinsurgent "missionary" work in the Third World. Starting where the superficial media coverage of TV preacher scandals left off, Diamond examines in riveting detail the movers and shakers of the Religious Right -- the propagandists, fundraisers, and "freedom fighters" who aid and abet the most regressive U.S. government policies, both foreign and domestic. In addition to an extensive treatment of religious broadcasting, SPIRITUAL WARFARE includes a harrowing description of authoritarian "shepherding" churches, as well as analyses of Christian Right activism in the Republican Party, the mobilization of anti-feminist women on "pro-family" issues, ongoing efforts to delegitimize progressive Christianity, and a multitude of "low intensity conflict" projects in Central America, southern Africa, and the Phillipines. This unsettling journey into the little known but extremely dangerous Christian Right is informed by extensive first-hand research -- hundreds of interviews, attendance at scores of of evangelical meetings, and more than a decade of monitoring religious broadcasting.'
