“Is religion the problem, or is religion the solution?
Is religion a harm to global ethics, or does it provide a healing touch?”
– Mark Juergensmeyer
From al Qaeda to Christian militias to insurgents in Iraq, a strident new religious activism has seized the imaginations of political rebels around the world. With his new book, Global Rebellion: Religious Challenges to the Secular State, from Christian Militias to al Qæda, Mark Juergensmeyer, provides an up-to-date road map through this complex new religious terrain.
Dr. Mark Juergensmeyer is an expert on religious violence, conflict resolution, and South Asian religion and politics. He has been a frequent commentator in the news media, including CNN, NBC, CBS, BBC, NPR, and Fox News. He is the Director at the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies and also Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
