American Heretics, by Peter Gottschalk

The idea that America is a stronghold of religious freedom is central to our identity as a nation - and utterly at odds with the historical record.. In American Heretics , historian Peter Gottschalk  tracers the arc of American religious discrimination and shows that, far from dominant protestant religions being kept in check by the separation between church and state, religious groups from Quakers to Jews have been subject to similar patterns of persecution. Today, many of these same religious groups that were once regarded as anti-thetical to American values are embraced as evidence of our strong religious heritage - giving hope to today's Muslims, Sikhs and other religious groups now under Fire.--St. Martin's Press, was $28.00, now $7.98
