"Mark Silk uncovers the journalistic mind as only a working newspaper reporter can.

Making capitalism work by Leonard Solomon Silk( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making Capitalism Work examines how capitalism has evolved and how it is currently working in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, and the industrialized countries of the West. Recognizing the strengths of different capitalist regimes, the book suggests ways for each to remedy its defects. In the process, the authors show that policies based on a belief in an unfettered free market have failed both economically and politically. The book argues that a strong governmental role remains essential to assure prosperity, to insulate citizens from the fluctuations of the market, and to meet the responsibilities of the rich to the poor and of present generations to future ones

Religion and public life in the South : in the evangelical mode( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religion and public life in the Pacific Northwest : the none zone by Patricia O'Connell Killen( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: When asked their religious identification, more people answer "none" in the Pacific Northwest than in any other region of the United States. But this does not mean that the region's religious institutions are without power or that Northwesterners who do attend no place of worship are without spiritual commitments. With no dominant denomination, Evangelicals, Mainline Protestants, Catholics, Jews, adherents of Pacific Rim religious traditions, indigenous groups, spiritual environmentalists, and secularists must vie or sometimes must cooperate with each other to address the regions' pressing economic, environmental, and social issues. One cannot understand this complex region without understanding the fluid religious commitments of its inhabitants. And one cannot understand religion in Oregon, Washington and Alaska without Religion and Public Life in the Pacific Northwest
Religion and public life in the Mountain West : sacred landscapes in transition by Mark Silk( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Huge mountain ranges and vast uninhabited areas characterize the Mountain West. The region is home to several dense urban centers, but there is enough space between cities for three very distinct religious cultures to develop. Arizona and New Mexico's religious public life is still dominated by the Catholic church which was in place three centuries before these areas became U.S. states. Mormons came to Utah and Idaho in the 19th century to set up their own church-state and only later were admitted to the Union. Religious minorities from Native Americans to 'mainstream' Protestants must contend
Religion and public life in the midwest : America's common denominator?( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike other volumes in the Religion by Region series, Religion and Public Life in the Midwest includes chapters devoted to a single city (Chicago), a single mainline Protestant denomination (Lutheranism), and religious variations in urban, suburban, and rural settings. This fourth book in the series does not neglect the pervasive image of the typical Midwesterner, but it does let the region's marbled religious diversity come through."--Jacket
Religion and public life in New England : steady habits, changing slowly( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although stoical New Englanders may not be showy about it, religion continues to play a powerful role in their culture. In fact, their very reticence to discuss religion may stem from long-standing religious divisions in the region. Beginning in the 1840s, Catholics flocked to the region and soon challenged the Protestant establishment. Tensions between the powerful mainline Protestant minority and the Catholic majority continue to this day. This third volume in the Religion by Region series devotes many of its pages to these two dominant groups. Yet the authors do not overlook the roles of conservative Protestants, African Americans, and Jews. Religion & Public Life in New England also imagines the long-term effects of recent developments such as the arrival of non-Judeo-Christian religions to the region and the Catholic priest sexual abuse scandal. This volume provides a very readable account of religion in this most regional of U.S. regions."--Jacket
Religion and public life in the southern crossroads : showdown states( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The region that has produced our last three presidents is ground zero of America's current culture wars. Comprising Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma, it is a land of borders where East meets West, South meets North, and Anglo America meets the cultures of Mexico and the Caribbean. Here, cultural and religious conflicts have long been a way of life: Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, and Catholics; Latinos, Blacks, and Native Americans all strive with and against each other around agendas of family, gender, race, and turf. This book examines the distinctive character of this Southern region and shows how it is shaping the religious politics of America today. - Back cover
Religion and public life in the Middle Atlantic region : the fount of diversity( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Middle Atlantic region's religious diversity began in the 17th century and continues today. European religious minorities recognized the need to tolerate other faiths if they themselves were to be tolerated. From Quaker Pennsylvania to English Catholic Maryland to New York with no state religion, the Middle Atlantic colonies inspired the framers of the Constitution to keep a wall of separation between religion and government. But the religious diversity of the region is tempered by the many religious institutions that have centers in the area, especially in Washington, DC and New York City. The diversity here is due less to fluid identities and emerging religions than to many established religious institutions recognizing and tolerating each other. Protestant, Catholic and Jewish traditions function alongside each other here and they make room for the religions of new immigrants."--Publisher's website

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evangelicalism has, since the 1960s, outpaced mainline Protestantism to encompass more than a third of American adults and nearly half of all U.S. Christians. Thematic chapters on culture, spirituality, theology, politics, and ethnicity reveal sources of the movement's dynamism, as well as significant challenges confronting the rising generations. This collaborative undertaking by scholars of history, religious studies, theology, political science, and ethnic studies offers unique insight into a vibrant and sometimes controversial movement, the future of which is closely tied to the future of America
