Fundamentalisms and the State : Remaking Polities, Economies, and Militance by Martin E. Marty (Editor), R. Scott Appleby (Editor), John H. Garvey (Editor), Timur Kuran (Editor)

Book Description

Do fundamentalisms tend toward political activism, and how successful have they been in remaking political structures? To answer this question, the contributors to this volume-- political scientists, historians of religion, anthropologists, and sociologists--discuss the anti-abortion movement, Operation Rescue in the United States, the Islamic war of resistance in Afghanistan, Shi'ite jurisprudence in Iran, and other issues. The volume considers the effect that antisecular religious movements have had over the past twenty-five years on national economies, political parties, constitutional issues, and international relations on five continents and within the traditions of Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism. Marty and Appleby conclude with a synthetic statement on the fundamentalist impact on polities, economies, and state security.
