American Taliban: How War, Sex, Sin, and Power Bind Jihadists and the Radical Right Moulitsas, Markos Polipoint Press (September 1, 2010)

When prominent Atheists speak of the dangers of a powerful fundamentalist religious influence in government or complacent religious moderates allowing the further progress of such an influence they are speaking about the examples listed in this book. This work is a journalistic piece which allows it to be a straight forward account of the growth and influence of the religious right in America. It paints a clear picture concerning what their goals are and how they are attempting to achieve them. I recommend this book to anyone not convinced that such a threat exists in America. It is an easy introduction into the dangers our free society faces if the American Taliban continues to gain ground.
