Today new and ever more pernicious forms of terrorist violence threaten the world. Because these new forms of violence are so often linked to religious radicalism, modern terrorism has challenged the secular ethics of contemporary civil society. There is a pressing need to understand modern religious movements that have added militancy and belligerence as fundamental elements of religious practice. Contributors to this volume painstakingly tackle the question of how to define the contours of current religious fundamentalism as they examine the private and public postures of fundamentalist rhetoric, the importance of its regional variants, and the damage it can do to regional and national education systems. Their analysis tracks trends in religious movements that aspire to radicalize, reform, and violently topple governments and nations, while highlighting the difference between fundamentalist interpretations and other longstanding juridical, political, and intellectual traditions.

About the Author:

Santosh C. Saha is Professor of History at Mount Union College in Ohio.

Review:

Santosh Saha's scholarly book provides a cogent and a brilliant in-depth analysis of socio-political issues in the context of religious fundamentalism from fresh angles. It's a must reading for general and well-informed readership. (B. M. Jain, University of Rajasthan, India)

This volume will make the reader sit up and pay attention. It gives due weight to the world-changing potential of religious fundamentalism, as a force as powerful as Marxism was in the twentieth-century. It pays scholarly regard to the diversity of fundamentalism in different religious and regional settings. And it delves into a matter calling out for our attention: the effect of fundamentalism on education. The context for its discussions is the world since September 11, 2001. The blend of scholarship and political urgency renders this volume both a valuable resource and a call to responsible action. (Revd Dr. Harriet A. Harris, Wadham College, Oxford)

The hatred and darkness being spread in the name of religious fundamentalism certainly needs to be studied and exposed. This well-written, well-organized, well-argued, and well-referenced work is a giant step in the right direction. (Robert Lawless, Wichita State University)

The book, carefully written by a galaxy of authors with first-hand experience, is well-documented and comprehensive in its goal. (Missiology: An International Review)

This collection represents a pluralist approach to religious fundamentalism. No definitional order is imposed and a variety of theories are expounded. All the author are engaged analytically in the attempt to identify and to comprehend the many faces of fundamentalist ideology in our contemporary world. There are ten chapters by authors representing a broad range of academic disciplines. (International Third World Studies Journal and Review)
