Essays on power as a central aspect of religion, including its intersections with politics, art, and other realms; topics include Catholicism and secessionist warfare in Papua New Guinea. * -The Chronicle of Higher Education * An inspired guide for understanding the comeback of religion in a world that appeared to be secularizing. This seminal mix of texts on different parts of the world critically addresses both the often all too easy suppositions that made ever further secularization seem inevitable and the dangers of equally simplistic analysis of the revival of religion as an effect of changing power relations. The various authors show the way for increasingly sophisticated interpretations of the complex links between religion and power. -- -Peter Geschiere * University of Amsterdam *
