The only text of its kind, Religion and Global Politics highlights the potency and enduring nature of religion in global politics and asks students to consider religion as a serious motivator of political desire. Offering a balanced and objective perspective, Part I examines a variety of faith perspectives including Christianity, Roman Catholicism, Hinduism, Judaism, and Islam. It presents carefully selected case studies that introduce students to the empirical and theoretical questions underpinning religion and politics in the United States, Europe, India, East Asia, and Latin America, at both the domestic and international level. Part II uses essential concepts to explore the role that religion plays in the construction of global order and the ways in which religious groups affect the political process in contemporary societies in terms of human rights, war and peace, conflict resolution, and globalization. An accessible introduction to the text provides students with context, laying out the history of religion in global politics and the theories that unite and divide political scientists. A conclusion encourages students to apply what they have learned by discussing the future of religion in global politics.

Designed for undergraduate students, Religion and Global Politics incorporates pedagogical tools including bolded key terms, chapter-review questions, boxed inserts, chapter conclusions, additional sources, web resources, and a glossary.

FEATURES:

Interdisciplinary perspective: The only book that intentionally caters to undergraduate students in religious studies, political science, sociology, and international relations

Balanced perspective: Motivates students to think critically about the subject and form their own world views

Practical context: Case studies bring the issues to life, helping students to contextualize theories with examples from real situations

Thought-provoking treatment: Encourages students to engage with theories and concepts and to think about the permanent role that religion plays in politics, even in secular states

About the Author:


Paul S. Rowe is associate professor of political and international studies and senior research fellow in the Religion, Culture, and Conflict Research Group based at Trinity Western University, Langley, BC, Canada. He completed his undergraduate study at the University of Toronto, where he studied international relations and the history and literatures of the ancient Near East. He later completed a master of arts in political science at Dalhousie University, writing primarily on the political economy and related security issues of the Middle East. He earned his PhD at McGill University in 2003, where his dissertation focused upon the politics of Christian minority communities in Middle Eastern states. He has spent extended time in the Middle East and South Asia and continues to study the politics of religious groups in developing countries and at the global level.

Review:

"Excellent through and through. This is a volume . . . long overdue in the interdisciplinary field of religion and politics. The book can be successfully used with students in political science and religious studies."

--Lucien Turcescu, Concordia University

"A book like this is a fine balancing act. . . . This [one] does it very well."

--Peter Beyer, University of Ottawa
