Atheist Secularism and Its Discontents takes a comparative approach to understanding religion under communism, arguing that communism was integral to the global experience of secularism. Bringing together leading researchers whose work spans the Eurasian continent, it shows that appropriating religion was central to Communist political practices.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book treats secularism as a variegated phenomenon that is `produced through interaction of religious practices, political reform and state-building' ... . This book is highly recommended to scholars interested in the interplay of religion, politics, and culture." (Bernice Glatzer Rosenthal, Slavic Review, 2017)

"The authors of this volume discuss the relationship between religion and communism, demonstrating how deeply both were intertwined. ... This volume certainly offers interesting insights on the place of religion within a communist project aiming for forcible secularisation, as well as on new post-1989 realities. ... the contributions to the volume offer fresh and thought-provoking perspectives on an approach that has recently become important to scholarship on communism and religion." (Paula Borowska, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 69 (6), 2017)
