DESCRIPTION

In recent decades, secularism, or the separation of religion and state, has been increasingly questioned by various religious movements and organizations. This book examines how Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh fundamentalists are seeking to overthrow established political, religious and social norms in their quest for a religiously based form of government. The coverage of the work is global and includes studies of all world's major religons, thus providing the reader with a comprehensive introduction to a subject of growing importance.

CONTENTS

Conservative Protestantism in the United States; militant black Islam in America; orthodoxy and Russian nationalism; Algeria's Islamic extremists; Christian fundamentalism and politics in black Africa; dynamic Hinduism; religious nationalism and Sikhism; Islamism in Malaysia and Indonesia; Buddhist autocracy in Burma; the politics of Philippine fundamentalism.
