Itinterrogates the central ideas and contexts behind religion, politics, and power, proposing an alternative way in which we should think about these issues in the twenty-first century. * A timely and highly original contribution to debates about religion, politics and power - and how historic and social influences have prejudiced our understanding of these concepts * Proposes a new theoretical framework to think about what these ideas and institutions mean in today&'s society * Applies this new perspective to a variety of real-world issues, including insights into suicide bombers in the Middle East * Includes radical critiques of the religious and political perspectives of thinkers such as Talal Asad and Michel Foucault * Dislodges our conventional thinking about politics and religion, and in doing so, helps make sense of the complexities of our twenty-first century world
