Chicago History of American Religion
Timothy Mennel, Acquiring Editor
The University of Chicago Press launched the Chicago History of American Religion series in 1973 under the editorship of Martin E. Marty. Recently renewed under the editorial direction of John Corrigan, the series builds on the strengths of its earlier classic works—concise, chronologically expansive, groundbreaking overviews of specific areas of American religious history. Books in the series combine synthesis with a critical and original viewpoint that demonstrates the importance of the topic with reference to lives and events, and to the ways the topic challenges, reinforces, or alters master narratives of American religious history. Forthcoming in the series are books by Robert Fuller (on religion and the body), Sally Promey (on religion and visual culture), Paul Harvey (on religion in the South), and others.
