New Cold War? Religious Nationalism Confronts Secular State

New Cold War? Religious Nationalism Confronts Secular State Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This is an indispensable book in helping us understand the new world disorder that seems to be overtaking us. Juergensmeyer points out that much of the world neither understands nor finds attractive the idea of a 'secular state.' He helps us see that religious nationalism is a fact of life that will be with us for a long time to come. Deconstructing any simple notion of 'fundamentalism,' he shows us how it is possible to live with religious nationalism constructively without demonizing it. That is a major achievement."—Robert Bellah, co-author of Habits of the Heart

"This penetrating analysis of the relationship of religious movements to political developments demonstrates how new forms of nationalism, rooted in indigenous religious and cultural traditions, are challenging the western model of the secular state in the Middle East, South Asia, and Eastern Europe. Because there is, Juergensmeyer argues, no satisfactory compromise between the religious vision of the national state and that of liberal democracy, a new kind of cold war may develop, no less obstructive of a peaceful international order than the old. An important, and sobering, feature of Juergensmeyer's analysis is his constant awareness of the significance of 'the religious right' in the United States and other western democracies."—Ainslie T. Embree, Columbia University

"This is an outstanding study of an increasingly important subject. I find Juergensmeyer's concept of religious nationalism more useful in explaining the new worldwide religious resurgence than most concepts currently in use. The book is gracefully written and should be read by anyone interested in world affairs."—Ehud Sprinzak, Hebrew University, Jerusalem

Synopsis:

"This comprehensive reader expertly assembles pivotal contributions to the growing transdisciplinary field of global studies. Linking the pressing global issues of our time to relevant regional developments, Mark Juergensmeyer successfully challenges his readers to think globally while paying attention to their concrete local environments." —Manfred B. Steger, Professor of Political Science, University of Hawai'i at Manoa, and author of Globalization: A Very Short Introduction

"Thinking Globally is the first textbook to give an effective overview of global studies as an intellectual field and emergent academic discipline. Juergensmeyer's work has the added virtue of giving a detailed account of global studies in all its complexity."—Dr Peter Phipps, Global Studies, RMIT, Melbourne.

"Thinking Globally is an outstanding model of the intellectual and practical issues involved with globalization and its study."—John Nemec, Associate Professor of Indian Religions and South Asian Studies, Department of Religious Studies, University of Virginia

 

Synopsis:

In this accessible text, Mark Juergensmeyer, a pioneer in global studies, provides a comprehensive overview of the emerging field of global studies from regional, topical, and theoretical perspectives. Each of the twenty compact chapters in Thinking Globally features Juergensmeyers own lucid introduction to the key topics and offers brief excerpts from major writers in those areas. The chapters explore the history of globalization in each region of the world, from Africa and the Middle East to Asia, Europe, and the Americas, and cover key issues in today's global era, such as:

• Challenges of the global economy

• Fading of the nation-state

• Emerging nationalisms and transnational ideologies

• Hidden economies of sex trafficking and the illegal drug trade

• New communications media

• Environmental crises

• Human rights abuses

Thinking Globally is the perfect introduction to global studies for students, and an exceptional resource for anyone interested in learning more about this new area of study.
