Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Historians, social scientists, and religious scholars argue that religion, conflict, and violence have intersected throughout history and across religious traditions. Their chronological treatment traces the arc of violence and peace across historical periods and cultures from the ancient Near East, through imperial Christianity and sacred war in Byzantium and Uzbekistan's unveiling murders, to American evangelical religion. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Intended for students as well as scholars of religion and violence, Belief and Bloodshed: Religion and Violence across Time and Tradition discusses how the relationship between religion and violence is not unique to a post-9/11 world-- it has existed throughout all of recorded history and culture.
