C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy
Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA
Date: September 2010
Duration: 9 hours 0 minutes
In Jeff Sharlet's bestselling book, The Family, he wrote about the ""C Street House,"" a Washington, D.C., Christian fellowship home shared by a number of conservative politicians. In the summer of 2009, the house became infamous as the center of sex scandals involving three of its residents: Senator John Ensign, Governor Mark Sanford, and Congressman Chip Pickering.
Sharlet is the leading expert on ""the Family,"" and his undercover research and investigative work answers some of the country's biggest questions: how political fundamentalism endures in America; why, despite the collapse of the old Christian Right, it is as big a threat to democracy as ever before; and where, in a time of political upheaval and culture wars, fundamentalist politicians really intend to lead the country.
