9780847693207: Boundaries of Faith: Geographical Perspectives on Religious Fundamentalism (Human Geography in the Twenty-First Century: Issues and Applications)

Representing the first major effort to examine the spatial strategies inherent in fundamentalism, this unique text explores the development and impact of religious fundamentalist groups in a variety of settings. Religious fundamentalism has become a complex and controversial force in the cultural dynamics of contemporary societies around the world. Clear and balanced, "Boundaries of Faith" focuses on the significant relationships between fundamentalist movements and the geographical contexts in which they develop. Using a comparative perspective encompassing diverse settings around the world, the text focuses on the key themes of contextuality and territoriality. Contextuality is defined as the crucial link between every fundamentalist movement and the setting in which it arises. Territoriality explains the various ways in which fundamentalists seek to promote their beliefs by controlling the meaning and uses of geographical space, both sacred and secular. The intertwining of these themes highlights the importance of geographical perspectives in understanding the nature and impact of fundamentalism as a diverse yet global phenomenon. This will be an ideal text in human geography courses to help students apply geographical concepts to a crucial world issue.

About the Author:

Roger W. Stump is professor emeritus of geography and religious studies at the University at Albany, SUNY.

Review:

Boundaries of Faith is a well-written, intelligent, and thought-provoking study that definitely repays a close reading. (Paul Boyer, Institute for Research in the Humanities, University of Wisconsin-Madison Environment And Planning A: Intl Journal Of Urban And Regional Research)

An important contribution to the growing literature on this increasingly volatile and frightening topic, as the tragic and horrific events of 11 September 2001 in the United States and the fall of the Taliban and Al-Queda in Afganistan continue to remind us on a daily basis. (E-Extreme)

Stump's book provides an excellent cross-cultural overview of the global phenomenon of fundamentalism. (Religious Studies Review)

This is a well-organized, systematically written, informative book that illustrates clearly and convincingly the importance of geography in the understanding of religious fundamentalism. The book is an interesting and accessible read. It will be very helpful for an undergraduate audience, and for the researcher looking to someone else to put in the hard work of pulling together a range of empirical material in a coherent way. It will appeal to those in geography, interdisciplinary religious studies, sociology and politics. (Progress In Human Geography)

This book is a remarkably clear exposition of the complexities involved in understanding the world after 9/11. For students, this book presents numerous opportunities for growth and development. An extremely readable book.qqqqq (Pioneer American Society)

This is a must-read for geographers of religion, political geographers, scholars of international relations, sociologists of religion, and all others challenged by religious behavior because it examines a very important societal issue in a thorough and logically organized discussion. After describing the background of fundamentalist movements within various world religions occurring in several countries, the author carefully explains commonalities and clarifies political implications, both existing and for the future. (Robert Stoddard, University of Nebraska, Lincoln)

This book is a remarkably clear exposition of the complexities involved in understanding the world after 9/11. For students, this book presents numerous opportunities for growth and development. An extremely readable book.q (Pioneer American Society)

In a masterful way, Stump challenges readers to compare and contrast the causes and effects of fundamentalist movements as they exist in different regions of the world (Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion)
