Summary

Religious Nationalism: A Reference Handbook challenges dominant scholarly works on religious nationalism by highlighting the discourses and conceptual blinders that both inform and delimit conventional analysis of the phenomenon dubbed "religious nationalism." The book engages in a multidisciplinary exposition that draws on insights from theories of nationalism, religious studies, peace research, and political theory, placing the questions of religious nationalism in a broader discussion of the discourses of secularism, modernity, and Orientalism. In doing so, the author enables readers to reconsider their basic presumptions inherent in their understanding of the role of religion in public life. Unlike other works on this subject, the work outlines connections between the analysis of the role of religion in conflict to thoughts regarding how religion may relate to processes of peacebuilding and conflict transformation, and further connects the discussion of religious nationalism to broader conversations on the so-called resurgence of religion. The book will serve advanced high school and college students studying religion, international relations, and related subjects while also appealing to a wide audience of readers with an interest in questions of religion and politics.
