Religion and Global Politics

Paul S. Rowe

  • Interdisciplinary perspective: The only book that intentionally caters to undergraduate students in religious studies, political science, sociology, and international relations.
  • Unique foundation: The only text of its kind, Religion and Global Politics suggests the potency and enduring nature of religion in global politics by asking students to consider religion as a serious motivator of political desire.
  • Balanced perspective: The text encourages students to think critically about the subject and form their own world views.
  • Practical context: Case studies bring issues to life, helping undergraduate students contextualize theories with examples from real situations.
  • Thought-provoking treatment: The text encourages students to engage with the theories and concepts surrounding religion and politics and to think about the permanency of the role religion plays in politics, even in secular states.
