The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power

A compellingly brilliant account of power in America and how it's shaped by religion. 'The Family' chronicles the ideas advanced by the elite Christian fundamentalist group of that name at the highest levels of government during the past half century. Through its White House and congressional connections, the Family has influenced the deployment of US power, especially in foreign policy during the Cold War and beyond. Led by the talented and Machiavellian Doug Coe, the group has operated sub-rosa in the corridors of power unhindered by democratic accountability.


Heh - 'secret'. :mrgreen:

David Brin just dumped this one in his regular bucket-o-links. Looks.. Dispiriting. Although in another way, not so much. I find religious fucknuttery slightly easier to accept than malevolence for the sake of it.
