This text wades into a perennially contentious debate: the degree to which religious experience is central to African American political involvement and success. Applying the techniques of a cultural resource model to this question, Frederick Harris makes a case for the formative influence of religion, both as a source of strength and often determinative in practical political consequences. Harris's argument overturns a large body of quantitative research on political activity, principally in the Chicago religious community. This book is intended for upper level undergraduate and graduates in political science.
