Although seen widely as the 20th 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.

About the Author:

Dianne Kirby is a Reader in History at the University of Ulster. She is acknowledged as having made a decisive intervention in the history of the Cold War by her pioneering scholarship on its religious dimension. In addition to publishing widely on the topic of the 'religious cold war', now recognised as a sub-genre in the field, she is also a member of the co-ordinating committee of the global research project, 'Christian World Community and the Cold War'. This innovative endeavour has brought together international scholars and ecumenists to study how Christians around the world met the challenge of the East-West conflict to the witness and service of the universal Church.

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
