Born and raised in England and educated at Oxford and Harvard universities, Ian MacMullen is a Political Theorist who specializes in the Politics of Education and of Religious and Cultural Pluralism. He is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis.
"MacMullen has succeeded in producing a work that is not only consistently of the highest academic quality, but that also speaks to and offers solutions for the extremely relevant problems of free-riding and civic passivity, so regrettably prevalent in our western democracies today." --ID: International Dialogue, A Multidisciplinary Journal of World Affairs "[A] remarkable and important contribution to the debate on religion and democracy. It not just represents great research and field work, but it also gives a model on how this concept can be used and tested on other case studies. EL [T]his book will surely remain a must-read for scholars and graduate students all over the world interested in religion and democracy." -- Democratization
