Authors: Timothy Shah Alfred Stepan Monica Duffy Toft

February 29, 2012

Too often steeped in a secularist mindset, academics, policy makers, and opinion shapers have only just begun to reckon with the varied impact of religion on global politics, society, media, gender issues, diplomacy, and economic development. Rethinking Religion and World Affairs documents how scholars, policy professionals, and journalists are now grappling with global religious dynamics and influences. Edited by Timothy Shah, Alfred Stepan, and Monica Duffy Toft, the book includes sections on how religion intersects with secularization, democracy and human rights, conflict and peacemaking, humanitarianism, the media, and American foreign policy.
