Part historical account, part explanation of implications, and part call to arms, Nonbeliever Nation is an amazing read. As a millenial, the state of the Religious Right has simply always been as it is now for me. Nonbeliever Nation did an amazing job of explaining the catalyst for the creation of the Religious Right, explaining why and how their actions are important (especially in the context of court decisions and policy creation), and explaining why secular Americans need to band together into an identity-based movement. The author also peppers the text with examples of how to do so, complete with examples from the, in comparison, wildly successful identity-based LGBTQ movement. I took a lot from the book, and I highly recomend it to anyone who despairs of religious tyranny in the US.
