Pressestimmen"This collection places the long-standing issue of the relation between religion and politics in the context of 'post-Cold War' developments and the rise of neo-liberal capitalist globalisation. The essays explore how religion reinforces stasis and exploitation on the one hand, and motivates resistance and change on the other." - Mark McClain-Taylor, Princeton University
