Riassunto: Both the Christian right and right-wing white supremacist groups aspire to overcome a culture they perceive as hostile to the white middle class, families, and heterosexuality. The family is threatened, they claim, by a secular humanist conspiracy that seeks to erase all memory of the nation?s Christian heritage by brainwashing its children through sex education, multiculturalism, and pop culture. In Lift High the Cross Ann Burlein looks at two groups that represent, in one case, the ?hard? right, and in the other, the ?soft? right?Pete Peters?s ?Scriptures for America? and James Dobson?s ?Focus on the Family??in order to investigate the specific methods these groups rely on to appeal to their followers.
Arguing that today?s right engenders its popularity not by overt bigotry or hatred but by focusing on people?s hopes for their children, Burlein finds a politics of grief at the heart of such rhetoric. While demonstrating how religious symbols, rituals, texts, and practices shape people?s memories and their investment in society, she shows how Peters and Dobson each construct countermemories for their followers that reframe their histories and identities?as well as their worlds?by reversing mainstream perspectives in ways that counter existing power relations. By employing the techniques of niche marketing, the politics of scandal, and the transformation of political issues into ?gut issues? and by remasculinizing the body politic, Burlein shows, such groups are able to move people into their realm of influence without requiring them to agree with all their philosophical, doctrinal, or political positions.
Lift High the Cross will appeal to students and scholars of religion, American cultural studies, women?s studies, sociology, and gay and lesbian studies, as well as to non-specialists interested in American politics and, specifically, the right.

Dall'editore: “In Lift High the Cross Ann Burlein crafts fascinating case studies exploring boundaries between the Christian Right and the Extreme Right. She simultaneously shows how both ideologies intersect and share notions of a hierarchical natural order embedded in mainstream assumptions—themselves shaped by a cloaked history of cultural violence that we all share.”—Chip Berlet, coauthor of Right Wing Populism in America

“Lift High the Cross teaches scholars, activists, and a popular audience the all-important historical background and differences among various groups on the Right, but just as importantly, it also teaches a way of performing politics that demands both activism and thinking. This sophisticated discussion of politics, religion, and religious narratives could not be more timely, in particular because the activist left has had such a hard time grappling with religion.”—Linda Kintz, author of Between Jesus and the Market: The Emotions that Matter in Right-Wing America
