Description

Relevant No More? The Catholic/Protestant Divide in American Electoral Politics re-examines current prevailing views on the political affiliations of religious voters. Analysing both the history of religious voting behavior and current trends, author Mark Brewer argues that the supposedly drastic shift of the allegiance of American Catholics from the Democratic party to the Republican party has been greatly exaggerated. He then provides a fascinating exploration of the views and outlooks which divide Catholic and Protestant voting behavior, making a convincing case that many of these differences originate in the religions' world views. Highly empirical and creative,Relevant No More? provides new insight into interactions between religious values and voting behavior in America.
