New book coming in January 2015
"The United States is arguably the most religiously diverse nation in the world.
Peter Manseau shows how this has always been the case.
One Nation, Under Gods is a refreshing, compelling, and surprising reexamination
of our nation's history
that puts lie to the oft-quoted idea that America was founded as 'a Christian nation.'"
—Reza Aslan, bestselling author of Zealot
"Here at last is the rest of the American story, in one great kaleidoscope of a book.
Peter Manseau has revealed the many too often obscured by 'one nation.'
The truth is so much more vast and strange and funny and fascinating than that,
and Manseau, a brilliant writer of great wit, curiosity, and learning, is the perfect guide."
—Jeff Sharlet, bestselling author of The Family
"One Nation Under Gods is one of those too-rare works of innovative history
that also manage to be works of literary art. Its series of interlocking stories,
rich in color and depth, combine to offer a new picture of America, both past and present."
—Adam Goodheart, bestselling author of 1861
