Product Description

Review

"Technology has been central to war from the Greeks to the present, from Archidamus, who reacted with alarm to the appearance of a weapon that could shoot darts through the air, to today's U.S. armed forces, which see a revolution in military affairs around every corner. Jensen and Wiest provide a highly readable yet sophisticated analysis of technology's place in modern warfare that incorporates industrial, political, military, social, and psychological aspects. It is a model of erudition and scholarship."-Holger H. Herwig, University of Calgary

"Both general readers and military specialists . . . will find much that is informative and thoughtful in this generally superior collection of essays." -"The Historian",

"It is the product of an unusual intellectual matrix."-"Technology and Culture",

"In the last two decades we have witnessed constant deconstructions and reconstructions of the categories of religion, the secular, and now the post-secular. This volume is the best entry I know to the whole debate. It serves both as a perfect illustration of the shifting terrain and as a helpful analytical guide to its exploration."-Jos Casanova, author of "Public Religions in the Modern World"

"The quality of almost all the chapters of this book is unusually high. One can learn things one didn't know and see them in a way one hadn't thought of by reading this diverse but very stimulating collection. The book does not solve the murky problem of the secular, much less the post-secular, but it gives new ways of thinking about them that have great promise as our work on these issues goes forward."-Robert Bellah, author of "Religion in Human Evolution: From the Paleolithic to the Axial Age"

"The Post-Secular in Question sustains the recent scholarly attention given to the contested and rather murky notion of post-secularism, although it approaches the topic in a more interesting way than many other works."-"Religion Watch",

"An important contribution to the vast literature on secularization and religion in contemporary society. Scholars interested in those important topics will find much value in the book."-"Sociology of Religion",

"This book is an indispensible guide for those interested in developing a cross-cultural, historical appreciation of religion, a central concern for the founders of sociology...highly recommended for upper-division graduates and above."-"CHOICE",
