Review:

"This collection of essays provides a sophisticated and admirably balanced comparative analysis, equally historical and social scientific, of contentious issues constantly subject to polemical and inflammatory readings. It looks equally at times and places where conflict did occur and where it did not, it examines key events and episodes that build up mythic representations, especially the so-called 'wars of religion', it draws attention to the complex mix of factors, in particular the role of state power, it points up the role played by insecurity, and it destabilises the sweeping categories and topoi that bedevil discussion. It provides a major contribution to an issue too often subject to circular arguments and definitions." - David Martin, London School of Economics, UK

"It can never have been easy to devise and assemble a collection of essays on religious conflict, since both the phenomenon itself, and its various interpreters, tend to indicate rather narrowly defined explanations. This compendium, notably well edited by John Wolffe, happily transcends received commonplaces, and offers the reader acute insights into the causes and circumstances of conflict without imposing really precise generalisations. This is in itself valuable: what emerges from these excellent studies is the significance of ever-changing historical circumstances in the determination of particular occasions of conflict, and the manner in which individual personalities generated action. ... This collection of essays is sober and considered; it is consistently of a high standard of scholarship and reflection. As Mark Greengrass puts it in his contribution (and in a modern mode of expression), they take into account 'the significant polyvalence and polysemy in confrontational content'. The financial sponsors of the book, the 'UK Global Uncertainties Programme' of the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and the Economic and Social Research Council, ought to be impressed." - Edward Norman, Peterhouse, University of Cambridge, UK

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 296 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.4in. x 0.9in.This book takes a fresh look at the roots and implications of the enduring major historic fissure in Western Christianity, which has had profound implications for culture, social life, politics and international relations across five centuries. It presents expertly informed historical research in a manner that relates meaningfully to contemporary and cross-disciplinary concerns. It explores the origins, perpetuation, reactivation and resolution of such conflicts, giving particular attention to the interaction of religious belief with other factors, including the impact of nationalism and the role of local contingencies. New insights into the historic dynamics of Protestant-Catholic conflict not only illuminate present-day contexts (such as Northern Ireland and the United States) where such polarities persist, but will also suggest instructive comparisons for approaching other seemingly entrenched conflicts in which religion is implicated, such as the perceived clash of civilisations between Christianity and Islam. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137289728
