The title may appear misleading, as Hecht concentrates mainly (though not exclusively) on the history of religious doubt. In a podcast interview Hecht says it was the publishers who didn't want it to be called 'A History of Atheism'. "I set out to write 'A History of Atheism' ... and for a large part that's what I did".[1]

The work provides a detailed history of religious doubt in both the West and the East, reaching back to the earliest recorded evidence of disbelief, the materialist, atheist philosophy of the Carvaka, which flourished in India ca. 600 BCE. Her study leads up to examples from the beginning of the 21st century.[2]
