This book examines the highly politicized religious groups and movements that have surfaced since the late 1970s in the United States, Central America, South Africa, the Philippines, India, and the Middle East. Sahliyeh and others analyze this trend toward the politicization of religious conservatism and question a number of assumptions central to concepts of modernization. For example, it has been assumed by development theorists that the interrelated components of modernization would enhance the trend toward secularization of societies. This book shows that in many societies today religious revivalism and fundamentalism seem to be direct products of modernization. A global, comparative approach is utilized to formulate general explanations for religious revivalism and its implications for modernization, development, and politics.

Review:

The topic is currently of global interest. In my view it makes a significant contribution to the understanding of complex issues that affect us all. At the same time it will stimulate useful debate in the fields of religion, politics, and social theory. Harold H. Oliver, Professor of Philosophical Theology, Boston University School of Theology"
