About this product
- DescriptionThe turn of the twenty-first century has seen an ever-increasing profile for religion, contrary to long-standing predictions of its decline. Instead, the West has experienced what some call a realignment of religion where it persists in conjunction with other institutions and structures.

Across these contexts, issue in religion is of as much concern as fundamentalism or rather the fundamentalisms within various traditions which are seen to be fomenting religious, social, ethnic, and political tension and conflict.

The result lays important groundwork for scholarship on these new and increasingly important phemena.
