Editorial Reviews


‘A thoughtful, provocative book about one of the most important - and underappreciated - phenomena in American politics today.’ Peter Beinart, The Atlantic

‘Secular Surge captures the single most important development in contemporary American politics: the ascendance of the non-believer. For growing numbers of voters, religion is simply irrelevant, and they are finding a home in the Democratic Party. Just as the rise of the Christian right transformed the Republican Party, the Secular Left is driving an internal realignment of the Democrats. David E. Campbell, Geoffrey C. Layman and John C. Green are the ideal choice to tell this story.’ Thomas Edsall, The New York Times

‘Despite the increasing number of non-religious people in the United States, scholars’ understanding of this group is woefully limited. Secular Surge draws on an extraordinary range of data to make compelling arguments about who secular Americans are, why secularism is on the rise, and what the political consequences of an increasingly secular America are. This pathbreaking book is required reading for anyone interested in religion or politics, both separately and together.’ Michele F. Margolis, University of Pennsylvania

‘In just one generation, we have witnessed a dramatic transformation in the U.S. religious landscape: more and more Americans are opting out of organized religion altogether. Why is this the case? What social and political ramifications might arise from the growth in religious disaffiliation? In this pathbreaking book, David Campbell, Geoffrey Layman, and John Green offer systematic, detailed answers to these questions. Their work will form the foundation of our understanding of American secularists for many years to come.’ Laura R. Olson, Clemson University

‘The rise of the religiously unaffiliated is one of the most important phenomena in both American religion and American politics. This book tells you who these people are, what they believe, and what an increasingly secular United States might look like. It is a deeply researched and pathbreaking work.’ John Sides, Vanderbilt University

‘The number of non-religious people in the United States is rapidly rising. How is this growing presence of secular Americans playing out in our national politics? In this highly readable, extremely informative, and very timely analysis, Campbell, Layman, and Green offer a rigorous and insightful discussion of the politics of secularism in America. Strongly, heartily recommended.’ Phil Zuckerman, author of Living the Secular Life and What It Means to be Moral
