Summary Today people are curious about who the WASPs really are and were. With searing objectivity, shaded by a compassionate intelligence, Marty exposes the racism, intellectual complexity, and peculiar flexibility that helped to make up the unique institution American Protestantism was at its height. The author structures his investigation around problems of conflict: between races, social classes, between denominations and "schools."
