0 Reviews
Mainuddin (political science, North Carolina Central U.) argues that although there is a lot of discussion of the connections between Islam and politics, there is a need for a wider exploration of the connections between religion and politics. He presents nine papers that study cases in Nicaragua, Mexico, Haiti, Malawi, Israel, Algeria, Palestine, Chechnya, and Bangladesh. Most of the material is basically descriptive and the theoretical focus is on the institutional relations between and within church and state. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
