Rethinking Religion and World Affairs

eds. Timothy Samuel Shah, Alfred Stepan and Monica Duffy Toft

In recent years, the role of religion in the study and conduct of international affairs has become increasingly important. The essays in this volume seek to question and remedy the problematic neglect of religion in extant scholarship, grappling with puzzles, issues, and questions concerning religion and world affairs in six major areas. Drawing on the work of leading scholars as well as policymakers and analysts, Rethinking Religion and World Affairs is the first comprehensive and authoritative guide to the interconnections of religion and global politics.

The volume includes an appendix featuring the most highly regarded online resources for the study of religion and world affairs.
