"An absorbing, painstaking, overdue, typology and elucidation of the central phenomenon in American politics of the last 20 years." --Kirkus Reviews "While there have been plenty of books written about the left, scholars haven't paid anywhere near the same attention to the American Right. This book, one of the most sweeping studies of its kind goes a long way toward rectifying the imbalance.... Rather than emphasize each groups' extremism, as the media often does, Diamond makes clear their links to mainstream thought and to the political and business thought and to sustain them. She makes dozens of crucial connections... This book should prove a touchstone of future discussion about the right, which is more powerful today than at any time since the 1920s." --Publishers Weekly "'Any time there's a mass social movement, it's assumed that its members are crazy,' says Sara Diamond, an independent scholar who has been studying the right for over a decade. So there are entire aspects of the right wing that haven't been covered - because they don't fit the frame of 'kooky extremist.'.... Diamond's encyclopedic new book,Roads to Dominion: Right-Wing Movements and Political Power in the United Statesstudies the postwar American right in both its mainstream and its fringe Incarnations." --Lingua Franca "Diamond's panoramic analytic overview and self-assured command of the facts make this the most important comprehensive book on the U.S. right ever written." --The Progressive "...provides a strong sociological study of the U.S.... One of the more comprehensive studies available, this is a 'must' for anyone studying right wing group movements." --The Bookwatch "Roads to Dominionmakes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the continuing right wing attack." --Z Magazine "A lushly-detailed sociological analysis that provides the most cogent and complex overview of the U.S. political right since WWII ever published." --The Public Eye "....useful reading for feminists....Will give feminist readers a more sophisticated understanding of the success of the Right as a whole, which can only help in formulating strategies to combat its efforts against feminism....Observes and analyzes the Right with a clear mind, an attitude of respect and a willingness to point out blundering, hypocrisy, and deception on the Left. Her work is invaluable for anyone who wants to get past partisan rhetoric....Probably the most comprehensive study of the recent U.S. Right in existence....An essential book, an important book in many ways a fascinating book...." --The Women's Review of Books "Should be required reading for any serious student of the subject." --Political Science Quarterly "A major delight is the book's sheer comprehensiveness. For individuals investigating the U.S. political right,Roads to Dominionis a necessary addition to their professional library....Another strength of Diamond's book is its even-handedness....Diamond's historical narrative provides a refreshing contrast to some of the more hyperventilated tomes examining the rise of the political right, and the Christian right in particular....A solid and highly readable book.Roads to Dominionshould quickly become standard fare." --Religion and Education Forum "Diamond's analysis provides good evidence to counter those who exaggerate the strength, unity and popular base of the right." --The Socialist Worker "... powerful, and chilling..." --Agenda "For all those casting wary glances at the ascendant right,Roads to Dominionis a must read.... Sara Diamond has done an excellent job of illuminating the nature of the US right. And she has laid the groundwork for more well-informed polemics against the rightist threat." --Covert Action Quarterly Named as an Outstanding Book on theDiamond, Sara is the author of 'Roads to Dominion Right-Wing Movements and Political Power in the United States', published 1995 under ISBN 9780898628647 and ISBN 0898628644.
