Inventing American Religion. Polls, Surveys, and the Tenuous Quest for a Nation's Faith.
Oxford University Press, 2015. 256p. Hardback. As one of the leading researchers and scholars in the sociology of religion, Robert Wuthnow is perfectly positioned to provide considerable insight into the process and production of sociological research into religion. This work provides interesting historical context to some of the most famous studies in the field. This book will be of interest to those who are interested in the history of those famous studies, those who are interested in polling and sociological research methods, and those who are interested in the social construction of knowledge itself. Readers will be challenged to reconsider what they think they know about what it means to be religious. V. Jacquette Rhoades, Reading Religion |a 13/11/17 (Publisher's information).
