'Masking Hegemony' presents a critical evaluation of the language used in liberal political thought, tracing liberalism's use of two key binary concepts - public/private and religion/state - from the Protestant Reformation to the present. Whilst appearing to separate "religion" from "state" and "public" from "private", this language actually masks the influence of religious institutions on state policies and the inevitable circulation of power from the private to the public sphere in a liberal democracy. 'Masking Hegemony' uses the work of Gramsci, Foucault and Bourdieu to offer a fresh approach to liberal ideology that will be of interest to students and scholars of both politics and religion.

Craig Martin is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at St. Thomas Aquinas College, New York.Review:
"[O]ffers a refreshing change of pace as a piece of self-reflexive criticism that asks scholars to consider the ways in which categories like 'liberalism,' 'religion,' and 'private'develop and get used for particular ends in the maintenance and regulation of what counts or gets to be included under such rhetorical umbrellas." - Religion
