9781137339430: Religion and the Cold War (Cold War History)

Although seen widely as the twentieth-century's great religious war, as a conflict between the god-fearing and the godless, the religious dimension of the Cold War has never been subjected to a scholarly critique. This unique study shows why religion is a key Cold War variable. A specially commissioned collection of new scholarship, it provides fresh insights into the complex nature of the Cold War. It has profound resonance today with the resurgence of religion as a political force in global society.

Review:

'Dianne Kirby and her 12 contributors provide new insights and interpretations of the period from 1945 to around 1960.' - Theology

'Many of these eye-opening essays are based on State Department and Foreign Office archives and exude the silver tongue of diplomacy. It is refreshing to read the assessment by Ian Jones of grassroots attitudes to the Cold War culled from church newsletters in Birmingham.' - Stuart Mews, Theology

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Religion and the Cold War, Dianne Kirby, Originally published over a decade ago, Religion and the Cold War was a groundbreaking contribution to Cold War scholarship that established beyond doubt that there was a significant religious dimension to the Cold War and that it mattered. The re-publication of these original pioneering essays is testimony not only to the way in which they have withstood the test of time and to their continued relevance, but above all because they are important contributions to the scholarly debates that are now taking place around the subject and which have implications that stretch far beyond academic enquiry. These explorations of the 'religious cold war' remain of profound importance, touching as they do on the relationship of religious institutions with temporal power, which is longstanding, intricate and varied, sustained not only by claims to command life's purpose and meaning, but also the provision of answers to men's deepest questions.
