Religion and the Future of American Politics
A. James Reichley examines the current and likely future roles in American politics of five major religious groups: Roman Catholics, mainline Protestants, white evangelical Protestants, black Protestants, and Jews.  He warns that if any of these groups pursue their particular interests too aggressively, they may undermine the essential part played by religion in nurturing democratic values.
