Abstract

Religious fundamentalism and it's role in US foreign policy is seemingly unstoppable. In "For God's Sake" Lee Marsden argues that the religious 'core values' of middle America have potentially disastrous consequences for the United States and the world in the coming century. Marsden looks at how the religious right has gained its influence with America's powerful elite through campaign contributions, lobbying and policy-making. He also claims that it is through a much wider programme of popular media campaigns that the Christian right has entrenched its values in much of American society. Finally, "For God's Sake" considers the negative impact which this influence is having on the environment, democracy and human rights, and considers how the Christian right's foreign policy agenda has manifested itself from Cuba to Israel and Iraq.
