The Problem of Religious Diversity

European Challenges, Asian Approaches

First Edition

Anna Triandafyllidou and Edited by Tariq Modood

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Showcases high level scholarship from around the world - a truly intercontinental volume that disrupts the previous dominance of Euro- and West-centric viewpoints and analyses
  • Brings together scholars from political theory, Islamic studies, sociology and law
  • Distinguishes secularism from atheism and democracy (or authoritarianism)
  • Explores alternative conceptions of the secular arising from the search for a civic basis of national unity or from a religious sense of nationhood
  • Case studies cover Britain, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Israel, as well as several comparative European studies
