Introduction

In the fall of 2005 I found myself engaged, most unexpectedly, in a heavy
exchange of emails with the man who had blown the whistle on Watergate, John
Dean. He was writing a book about "conservatives without conscience"--which
the late Senator Barry Goldwater was to have co-authored. Dean, Goldwater,
and others with solid Republican credentials had been alarmed by the capture of
the Grand Old Party by the Religious Right and its seemingly amoral leaders.
Dean was plowing through the social science literatures on conservatism and
religion to see what perspective academics could offer his analysis, and
eventually he ran across my name.

The entire book online

8. I just recently re-listened to that Dean book in Audible.com format,
and recall the reference to that Altemeyer book. Thanks for the link. I just noticed that it too is available at Audible.com, so I bought it and am now downloading it. I'm glad to see the book available as a free on-line document, but I really dislike reading .pdf documents! (Am I the only one?)
