Summary
By mid-century, modern technology and Western thought had swept religion to the margins of public life. Since, millions have turned back to God--and taken political action based on their religious beliefs. This video describes the growing power of religious fundamentalism in various parts of the world, including the fall of the Shah of Iran and the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in Iran and other Islamic countries, as well as the Christian right in the United States
