The Rest Is History


152. American Crusades

On today's episode Tom and Dominic are joined by Andrew Preston, a Cambridge University professor whose new book focuses on religion in American war and diplomacy.

What is the role of religion in the American outlook? How has it shaped foreign policy? What is the relationship between pacifistic religious ideals and a crusading mentality?

Join us tomorrow for another episode, which focuses on more recent American history and its relationship with religion.
