Summary
"While many textbooks treat 'world religions' in an apolitical way, as if each religion were a path for individual seekers after wisdom and not a discourse intimately connected with the exercise of power, Laine's book treats religion and politics as halves of the same whole, and he traces their relationship from the days of Alexander the Great to the secularists of modern Europe, with stops in classical India, China, and the Islamic world"--Provided by publisher
