Description

Newly expanded, reorganized, and now in full colour, the latest edition of this classic reference work captures the increasing complexity of religion in the United States. Charting the history of religion and religious life since the 1600s, the Atlas sheds new light on the growth and national makeup of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism and on the religions of such diverse ethnic groups as Native Americans, African Americans, and Hispanics. Over five hundred colour maps and charts illustrate the history of America's diverse religious groups, their locations in space and time, locally, regionally and nationally, and their movements, surroundings, and encounters with other groups. The richly informative text is an expert narrative account that sets the maps into context. Augmented by a bibliography, appendices and numerous indexes, the Atlas serves a remarkable variety of readers from students to scholars.show more
