In this book, Herzog outlines the influence the Religious Right has had upon the dialogue about sexuality in the US. Some of the issues will, no doubt, already be familiar with readers--such as the battles over sex ed , prejudice against gays and lesbians, and the culture wars over "traditional marriage." Other topics will no doubt surprise readers--such as conservatives' efforts to deny access to condoms as an AIDS preventative in Africa.

Some sections of the book tend to drag, and aside from the unintentionally funny (or disturbing) quotes from evangelical crusaders, there's really no humor in the book.
