“The Family”


I’m no conspiracy theorist. Nor am I particularly naive when it comes to politics, yet Jeff Sharlet’s book about the long and strange history of the influence of fundamentalism on the U.S. government’s policies and practices blew me away. Talk about strange (not to mention scary) bedfellows. Start, if you like, with this 2003 Harper’s magazine article by Sharlet, the basis of what would become the full-length book. The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power. The subtitle says it all.
