Authentic Fakes: Religion and American Popular Culture.

Chidester, David. Berkeley: University of California Press, 2005. 294+xii pp. $50.00 US (cloth), ISBN 978-0-520-24279-1;  $21.95 US (paperback), ISBN 0-520-24280-7.
[1] In Authentic Fakes, David Chidester explains how “the traces of transcendence, the sacred, and the ultimate” saturate American popular culture (10).  Far from flighty or irrelevant, the author posits that popular culture “has a lot to do with how Americans in the United States think about America” (29). “America” casts a large shadow in this book, extending beyond territorial boundaries and into the global theatre.  An American-born professor of comparative religion at the University of Cape Town in South Africa, Chidester is in a unique position to witness America’s widespread influence.  As a result, he delivers a captivating series of dispatches from popular culture, each revealing how religion is at work in some unlikely places throughout the world.  Both scholars of religion and popular culture and theorists of religion should read this book.  At its core, this volume is a penetrating study of religion, its meanings, locations, practices, and importance.
