Communities of Dissent: A History of Alternative Religions in America
Stephen J. Stein (au). The history of alternative religion -- from colonial Puritans to late-20th-cent. Branch Davidians -- runs parallel to that of dissent in America. Stein describes the evolution & structure of alternative religious movements from both sides; the critics & the religious dissenters themselves. Investigates obscure groups such as the 19th-cent. Vermont Pilgrims, alongside better-known believers, incl. the Quakers; 17th- & 18th-cent. Mennonites, Amish, & Shakers; & the Christian Scientists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Black Muslims, & Scientologists. Covers the history of alternative Amer. religions, from the Salem witch trials & mass suicide/murder at Jonestown to the positive ways in which these religions have affected racial relations & the empower. of women.
