Protestants Abroad: How Missionaries Tried to Change the World but Changed America
David Hollinger

Prof. Hollinger has had a distinguished career here at UCB bringing a nuanced understanding to the history of American multiculturalism, and in this new book he shows how Protestant zeal to spread the evangelical message often had the reverse effect of bringing the wider world’s perspectives back to American communities from abroad.

This book is part of the 2017 Berkeley Summer Reading List. Stay tuned for more weekly posts!
