Summary
"Religion. Power. Politics. Ideas and institutions that have been laden with a baggage of meanings picked up through the course of history - and which, unfairly or not, are often defined by these historic and social contexts. In this book, Ivan Strenski unpacks the central concepts and influences of religion, politics and power, and provides a new theoretical framework to think about what they mean in today's society. In addition to offering radical critiques of the religious and political perspectives of thinkers such as Talal Asad and Michel Foucault, Strenski moves beyond the theory in applying his intellectual framework to a variety of real-world issues, including insights into suicide bombers in the Middle East."--Jacket
