Comparative PerspectiveseBook - 2013
Drawing together contributions from leading scholars from across the world Contesting Secularism analyses how secularism functions as a political doctrine in different national contexts put under pressure by globalisation. Through its inter-disciplinary and comparative approach, Contesting Secularism sets a new agenda for thinking about the place of religion in the public sphere of twenty-first century societies. It is essential reading for policy-makers, as well as for scholars and students in political science, law, sociology and religious studies.
