The Economics of Religion explores the new paradigms of religious economics and economies of religion under the scope of transdisciplinary and international perspectives. It examines and appraises some of the recent theoretical developments and methodological innovations in religious and social sciences. This volume offers the chance to extend the analysis of religious behaviours by means of conceptual and methodological models of economics. It goes far beyond the classical economy and religion debate, and suggests not only theoretical but also epistemological changes in the study of religion: individual rationality and rational choice, market theory, demand and supply theory, branding and commodification of religion, believers consumer habits, churches competitive strategies, for example. Of course, these are not exempt from criticism, which this volume also addresses. These detailed and localized case-studies range from experimental to ethnographic methods, psychological to cultural aspects of believing and practising cults in the scope of economics of religion. Geographical areas covered include Nigeria, Bolivia, Italy, Mexico, France, Korea, Nepal and Tonga.

Review:

Anthropologists, along with environmental scientists, economists, historians of religion, and other researchers further an approach to studying religion that began in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Considering in turn theory, empirical evidence, and experimental studies, they discuss such topics as debating the sacrificial economy, Buddhism and the market economy in a globalized world, promising and engaging the future through ritual sponsorships in Mexico's eastern Yucatan, multi-level marketing at the crossroads of economy and religion, and an experimental test of the effect of religion on trust and cooperation. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR
