The Hidden History of the Historic Fundamentalists, 1933-1948: Reconsidering the Historic Fundamentalists' Response to the Upheavals, Hardship, and Horrors of the 1930s and 1940s by Jim Owen

Over the last forty years, historians' interpretation of the historic fundamentalists―circa the 1930s and 1940s―has accused them of social and political indifference to the hardships people experienced during the Great Depression and the Holocaust. In this book, Jim Owen examines historic fundamentalist magazines and journals to determine why there is such a radical disparity between what historians have written and what historic fundamentalists actually did. Through Professor Owen's investigation, we see a compassionate movement very involved―socially and politically―during the Great Depression, and a group that was vocal in combating anti-Semitism and denouncing the horrors of Nazi persecution.
