Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0534541267, Paperback)This theory-based book is purposefully selective rather than comprehensive and takes an integrated, global approach to examining religion in various cultures. Readers learn to identify both the complex interactions between religion and societal context and the ways in which these interactions shape individuals, communities, national politics, and the world society.
