The five co-authors of our hugely successful Habits of the Heart--Bellah, Madison, Swidler, Sullivan, and Tipton-- reconvene to edit this collection of original pieces by some of the leading sociologists and religion scholars in the country. The purpose of the book is to assess the importance and impact of Robert Bellah's notion of symbolic realism.
