"There is an increasing recognition across the social sciences that the dominance of an epiphenomenal approach to the study of religion in world affairs has produced inadequate research and scholarship. This volume speaks creatively to that lack, exploring the key themes that arise when discussing religion in international affairs, focusing its six sections thematically on secularization, human rights, conflict and peace-making, civil society, media, and foreign policy." --Theology "Rethinking Religion and World Affairs is a unique compendium of the perspectives of many of the top scholars writing on the increasingly prominent, but long neglected topic of religion and world politics. Illuminating the intersection of religion with the themes of democracy, human rights, conflict, humanitarianism, the media, and foreign policy, these first-rate essays offer broadly accessible, up-to-date treatments of the big ideas that define this field." --Jack Snyder, Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Relations, Columbia University
