This bold work challenges two popular conceptions of religion--as either the instigator of conflict or the propagator of peace. Martin, one of the world's leading sociologists of religion, rejects both as oversimplifications, and draws on case studies from Britain, the US, Latin American, and Romania to argue for a more nuanced, complex approach that takes account of the role of national and ethnic identity.

About the Author:

David Martin is at Lancaster University.

Review:

`This excitingly written book is a devastating put down of the modern superstition that the scientific world view is the answer to everything.'
Peter Mullen, Yorkshire Evening Press

`This is an important book whose thesis is well sustained and persuasive.'
Richard Harries, Times Higher Education Supplement

`Martin talks much good sense about the processes of change in religious, and especially Christian cultures.'
Brian Wicker, The Tablet

`Fascinating study.'
Digby Anderson, Spectator

`a subtle and scholarly analysis of the relations between Church and State that will be immensely helpful to everyone concerned with the problem ... As for the interdependence of Church and State in more sophisticated societies, Martin rehearses with scholarly precision arguments that go back
to St Augustine ... Martin argues the case exceptionally well ... It is refreshing to find a Professor of Sociology, however Emeritus, who can write like this.'
Times Literary Supplement

David Martin has written an erudite, illuminating and geographically and historically wide-ranging book with a provocative title but a reassuring conclusion. No, Christianity does not cause war. - Christie Davies. The Irish Times (Dublin). 18/4/1998

...Martin often spends his pages shuffling and reshuffling, often wittily, the available pack of sociological ideas. - Kenneth Minogue. Government and Opposition. 17/8/1998.

He writes with great certitidue. - Hugh Montefiore. Theology. 1/7/1998.
