- 53- BOOK REVIEW SECTION (All inquiries and correspondence pertaining to the reviewing of books should be addressed to: Karen Robinson, PNEUMA Book Review Editor, Library, Oral Roberts University, 7777 South Lewis, Tulsa, Oklahoma, 74171). Robert Mapes Anderson, Vision of the Disinherited: The Making of American Pentecostalism (New York: Oxford University Press, 1979). Reviewed by Grant Wacker. 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. The struggle for power and position dominates the story
