Synopsis:

Religion is now high on the public agenda, with recent events focusing the world's attention on Islam in particular. This book provides a unique historical and comparative analysis of the place of religion in the emergence of modern secular society. Bryan S. Turner considers the problems of multicultural, multifaith societies and legal pluralism in terms of citizenship and the state, with special emphasis on the problems of defining religion and the sacred in the secularization debate. He explores a range of issues central to current debates: the secularization thesis itself, the communications revolution, the rise of youth spirituality, feminism, piety and religious revival. Religion and Modern Society contributes to political and ethical controversies through discussions of cosmopolitanism, religion and globalization. It concludes with a pessimistic analysis of the erosion of the social in modern society and the inability of new religions to provide 'social repair'.

Book Description:

As societies become more diverse due to migration and multiculturalism, we need solutions to the potential for religious conflict. This book offers a unique look at the impact of globalisation on religion, providing a historical and comparative analysis of the place of religion in modern secular society.
