The religious right : a reference handbook by Glenn H Utter( )

24 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 3,699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely work presents an unbiased examination of the religious right and its role in American life. From the fight to outlaw the teaching of Darwin's theory of evolution to the struggle to outlaw abortion, the religious right is continually exerting an influence on public policy. This book explores the influence of religion on legislation and society, while examining the alignment of the religious right with the political right. A historical survey of the movement highlights the shift to a "hands-on" approach to politics and the struggle to present a unified front. Biographies of the men and women who have defined the movement and a detailed chronology provide a thorough understanding of the movement's agenda and goals. Annotated listings of print and nonprint resources, as well as of organizations affiliated with the religious right and those opposing it, aid in further research. Comprehensive in its scope, this work offers easy-to-read, pertinent information for those seeking to understand the religious right and its evolving role in American society." "The Religious Right: A Reference Handbook is part of ABC-CLIO's award-winning Contemporary World Issues series. Other books in the series deal with issues such as homelessness, abortion, domestic violence, gun control, global development, and capital punishment."--Jacket

Guns and contemporary society : the past, present, and future of firearms and firearm policy by Glenn H Utter( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This three-volume set examines various approaches to firearms, including constitutional and legal issues, public health and criminal justice concerns, and perspectives on personal safety and self-defense. Recent mass shootings have led to renewed calls for additional legislation at the state and federal levels to address gun access and control. In this hard-hitting compilation, experts delve into various aspects of firearms in America--from gun control and gun rights to militia movements, to school-related shootings, and to the recent trends in gun ownership by women. Authors from varied backgrounds and viewpoints share their perspectives on the pros and cons of firearm ownership as all of the following: a constitutional right, a key instrument of self-defense, a guarantee of political freedoms, and as a major factor in crime and personal injury. The reference is divided into three volumes. The first volume covers firearm history, legislation, and policy; the second volume explores public opinion, gun ownership trends, international laws, and self-defense; and the third considers popular debates about firearm policy, including concealed carry of firearms, terrorism and the ownership of firearms, background checks for purchasing guns, and stand-your-ground laws. The work concludes with an informed debate on gun policy between Richard Feldman, president of the Independent Firearm Owners, and Paul Helmke, former president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence."--Publisher's description
