  • Religion and Class conflict: Case study
    • Applies Gramsci's ideas in a case study comparing class struggle in two communities: coal miners and textile workers in Kentucky in the 1920s/30s.
    • Both were working-class and evangelical Protestants but miners were much more militant in struggling for better conditions.
    • The differences in the level of militancy can be understood in terms of hegemony and the role of religion.
