0 Reviews
This is a sound theory-based, integrated approach to religions place in society. Purposefully selective rather than encyclopedically descriptive, the text looks at religion in the context of many cultures. Each chapter is organized according to important theoretical issues, such as how religion is related to social cohesion and conflict.
