Liberation & Purity: Race, New Religious Movements & the Ethics of Postmodernity


Liberation & Purity: Race, New Religious Movements & the Ethics of Postmodernity Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The rise of new religious movements has raised important questions about our understanding of race, ethnicity and the lives of Black minority communities in the West. This revealing study examines the ideas and organization of new Islamic, Hindu and other movements, such as those revived in fight-wing black nationalism. It considers the creation of new "traditions" and new ethnicities in these movements and explores how ideas of purity, pollution, the body, sexuality, and gender are key themes in their "liberation". This book considers the relationship between right-wing and progressive social movements, and examines the influence on these movements of new globally organized communications technologies.
