Description: The first of two volumes in which Anker (English and film, Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan) looks particularly at how popular religion has given rise to the self-help tradition within American culture. He keeps to a narrow track, describing only actual outbreaks of the phenomenon rather than general trends or the genealogy of ideas. The first volume covers the Protestant ethic and Puritan New England; Benjamin Franklin, Cotton Mather, and individualism; and revivalism, religious experience, and the birth of mental healing.
