about this item

In the wake of the Great Recession and rising discontent with government responsiveness to ordinary citizens, participants in two very different groups—a progressive faith-based community organization and a conservative Tea Party group—worked together to become active and informed citizens, put their faith in action, and hold government accountable. They viewed themselves as the latest in a long line of prophetic voices and patriotic heroes who carried forward the promise of the American democratic project. Yet the practical ways in which the groups pursued this common vision subtly reflected different understandings of American democracy and citizenship. Prophets and Patriots offers a fresh look at two active grassroots movements and highlights cultural convergences and contradictions at the heart of American political culture.
