Whatever else one may say about this book, it is, at the very least, a sophisticated and awesomely erudite effort to trace the roots of Pente- costalism outward, into the social and cultural setting of the early twentieth century, and then backward, into the long and tangled history of ecstatic, millenarian, radically perfectionist religious movements. Perhaps the clearest way to assess the work is to begin by isolating the interpretive principles Anderson consistently uses. Taken together, these principles add up to a tough, bareknuckled argument that ex- treme social strain was the mainspring of the Pentecostal movement that erupted in the Southern Highlands, the lower Midwest, and in the Los Angeles Basin between 1900 and 1906. Starting first at the most general level, Anderson simply presumes a conflict model of social process.
