Democracy and the New Religious Pluralism

June 7, 2007
This 2007 book, edited by Thomas Banchoff, examines the political dynamics of religious pluralism in the United States and Western Europe. Immigration flows and a resurgence of religion and public affairs have raised difficult challenges on both sides of the Atlantic. Leaders and institutions have sought to accommodate growing religious diversity, to incorporate minorities, and to defuse tensions within and across faith communities. A group of leading scholars including Peter Berger, Jose Casanova, Diana Eck, Martha Nussbaum, and Robert Wuthnow examine these developments from multiple disciplinary perspectives, addressing topics including the church-state relationship in the US and the headscarves controversy in France.
