Through their role in the development of the First Amendment and their exercise of the freedoms it grants, alternative religious groups have had a profound influence on American history. As Stephen J. Stein points out in this vivid overview, the history of alternative religion–from colonial Puritans to late-20th-century Branch Davidians–runs parallel to that of dissent in America.
