Jones/Richey - American Civil Religion

American Civil Religion
Donald Jones & Russell Richey [ed]
New York, Harper & Row, 1974

This is a collection of essays about the amorphous but powerful topic of American Civil Religion.

I found it useful because it contains Bellah's 1967 Daedelus article.

Lots of sociological theory, lots of quarreling about definitions, extent, and meaning, lots of very good thinking.

I took some useful notes towards refining my argument, including a change to my changed title - my original idea for a new title was conceptually incomplete and did not lend itself to a coherent narrative.
