Summary:

By mid-century, modern technology and Western thought had swept religion to the margins of public life. Since then millions have turned back to God--and taken political action based on their religious beliefs. In Iran, a resurgence in Islamic fundamentalism led to a revolt against the Shah and to the return of the long exiled Ayatollah Khomeini. In the U.S., religious fundamentalism was also on the march, the Christian faithful eager to restore a "nation under God."
