"From Jeremiad to Jihad is an ambitious volume. The selections here introduce new perspectives on the intersection of religious institutions and American culture. Whereas the subject of just war has largely been the provenance of religious and philosophical studies, with some input from international relations and political science, the authors of this volume have brought methods and questions from the study of history to bear on the discussion. Carlson and Ebel have pulled together a significant work that fosters new conversations between scholars interested in just war and American religious history." - John Kelsay, author of Arguing the Just War in Islam "Why is America, one of the world's most religious societies, also one of the most violent? In a sophisticated, thoughtful and accessible manner, the essays in this collection provide an important examination of the complexities of American character that sees the sacred as sanctioning violence and allows violence to be sanctified." - Mark Juergensmeyer, author of Terror in the Mind of God: The Global Rise of Religious Violence "This is a stunning collection of essays--the single most comprehensive and wide-ranging set yet prepared. With "jeremiad" and "jihad" as their guiding tropes, the contributors brilliantly trace the life of this rhetorical strain. This volume is ideally suited for courses in religion and history as well as anyone interested in the role of religious violence in American culture and life." - Harry S. Stout, author of Upon the Altar of the Nation: A Moral History of the Civil War

Feminist,Ó with its modern interpretation, might not be the word Alma White would have chosen, but there is no doubt that this strong and independent woman fought all the definitions of what a woman was supposed to be at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century. When women were mostly consigned to the roles of wife and mother--and bitterly opposed as preachers--Alma White developed into a fierce and successful religious leader. A founder of the Pentecostal Union (later renamed the Pillar of Fire), she found biblical affirmation for her role as prophet and preacher. She was larger than life. A brilliant businesswoman, she was one of the first church leaders to embrace technology with the purchase of multiple radio stations. Alma White was one of those great, landmark American characters out of whom the richest of history is made.

Comparing the Klan to European fascist movements that grew out of the crucible of the First World War, MacLean maintains that the remarkable scope and frenzy of the movement is less a measure of members' power within their communities, than of the challenges to that power posed by African Americans, immigrants, Jews, Catholics, labor, and white women and youth who did not obey the Klan's canon of appropriate conduct. Powerfully written and impeccably researched, Behind the Mask of Chivalry is a model examination of the interaction of race, class, and gender, and an unforgettable investigation of a crucial era in American history.

Ignorant. Brutal. Male. One of these stereotypes of the Ku Klux Klan offers a misleading picture. In Women of the Klan, sociologist Kathleen M. Blee dismantles the popular notion that politically involved women are always inspired by pacifism, equality, and justice. In her new preface, Blee reflects on how recent scholarship on gender and right-wing extremism suggests new ways to understand women's place in the 1920s Klan's crusade for white and Christian supremacy.
