Product Description


"What a read Religion and Human Security: A Global Perspective, swimming
upstream to offer a substantial theoretical account of human security and religion as well as in-depth, practical case studies on their at-times rival accounts in specific cultural and political settings. The value of this kind of careful work should not be understated when almost any passable thinking on religion and security is now grant-worthy...An outstanding
contribution to the field." --Journal of Markets & Morality

"A more balanced view of the important and multidimensional roles religion plays in local and international politics." --H-Net Reviews

"Religion and Human Security links two critical factors in international affairs-religion and human security-in important and novel ways, providing insight for both scholars and policymakers on how religion impacts human security. This collection of essays should be required reading for government officials who are increasingly confronted with the challenges of safeguarding human security around the world."
--Steven A. Cook, Hasib J. Sabbagh Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies, Council on Foreign Relations

"This thoughtful book explores the multifaceted role of religion in the human security of contemporary global societies. Through arresting case studies and riveting theoretical reflections, it shows that the religious dimension of social welfare around the world is complex and interrelated. These well-honed essays reveal that while religious ideas and actors can cause much harm, they can also bring moments of healing and hope. It is a book that will be widely discussed in the fields of religion and society, public policy and global affairs."
--Mark Juergensmeyer, author of Global Rebellion: Religious Challenges to the Secular State
