This work is a collection of essays that describe and analyze religion and regime relations in various nations in the contemporary world. The contributors examine patterns of interaction between religious actors and national governments that include separation, support, and opposition. In general, the contributors find that most countries have a majority or plurality religious tradition, which will seek a privileged position in public life. The nature of the relationship between such traditions and national policy is largely determined by the nature of opposition. A pattern of quasi-establishment is most common in settings in which opposition to a dominant religious tradition is explicitly religious. However, in some instances, the dominant tradition is associated with a discredited prior regime, in which a pattern of legal separation is most common. Conversely, in some nations, a dominant religion is, for historical reasons, strong associated with national identity. Such regimes are often characterized by a “lazy monopoly,” in which the public influence of religion is reduced.

Review:

This important volume is a much needed contribution to the collective knowledge on comparative politics and religion. Religion and Regimes adds to the literature on religion and politics. . . .Empirically sound chapters successfully discuss case selection rationale and explain state–religion relations in the cases studied. . . .This book stands out with its compelling theoretical arguments. Contributors are no strangers to the literature on comparative politics and religion. Chapters offer valuable historical and contemporary contexts of the cases examined. . . .This book will be of great interest to all scholars and students of religion and politics. It is an accessible and informative study that will appeal to an interdisciplinary audience. (Sociology of Religion: A Quarterly Review)

Religion and Regimes provides a historically rich analysis of religion and politics in a number of diverse countries located all over the world . . . The authors provide compelling comparisons that show how similar contexts can provide divergent long-term results. . . .By presenting a wide array of cases, the volume encourages the reader to compare and contrast—seeing the patterns that can and do emerge across diverse political and religious communities. (Journal of Church and State)

For anyone interested in Church-state dynamics in the contemporary world this dazzling new volume, ably edited by Mehran Tamadonfar and Ted G. Jelen, will be most welcome. Religion and Regimes surveys a wide array of cases in Eurasia and the Western Hemisphere, setting present-day patterns of religious-political interaction in a historical context and showing how some assumptions about religion made at the dawn of the twentieth century, in one or another country, were abandoned over time. This is scholarship at a high level. (Sabrina P. Ramet, Norwegian University of Science and Technology)

This new volume marks a major contribution to the literature on comparative politics and religion. Tamadonfar and Jelen succeed in their effort to tease out the core analytical importance of the regime for our understanding of how religious and state actors interact in different national contexts. Covering fifteen countries on four continents, the contributions to this volume have much to offer all students of religion and politics in our globalizing world. (Laura R. Olson, Clemson University)
