She focuses on the role of religious women in right-wing Christianity and asks, for example, why so many women are attracted to what is often seen as an antiwoman philosophy. With texts from such organizations as the Christian Coalition, the Heritage Foundation, and Concerned Women for America, and writings by Elizabeth Dole, Newt Gingrich, Pat Robertson, and Rush Limbaugh, Kintz traces the usefulness of this activism for the secular claim that conservative political economy is, in fact, simply an expression of the deepest and most admirable elements of human nature itself.

A Review of Contemporary Media. I can't emphasize enough the timeliness and importance of this groundbreaking collection not only to scholarship in media studies and cultural studies, but to the broader liberal-left intellectual analysis of media politics. This book promises to be a major resource in the media-access battles that will continue to rage in this paradoxical era of mass media deregulation and government censorship in the arts.
The essays in this anthology explore the institutional structures of the religious right and the ideology being engendered through them, focuusing on the highly effective use of television, radio, and video to communicate the conservative Christian message.
