9781845116873: Dying for Faith: Religiously Motivated Violence in the Contemporary World (Library of Modern Religion)

From India to Iraq, from London to Lahore, the relationship between religion and violence is one of the most bitterly contested and casually misrepresented issues of our times. This groundbreaking volume brings together expert perspectives from a variety of fields to probe it.  It seeks to shift analytical focus on to the contexts in which violence is expressed, enacted and reported.  Ranging from Islam to Buddhism to new religious movements in the West, Dying for Faith offers a comprehensive and highly original account of a complex phenomenon that has so far attracted sensational media coverage but scant academic attention.
