Religion and social transformations

Herbert, David ed. (2002). Religion and social transformations. Religion Today: Tradition, Modernity and Change, 2. Ashgate.



Religion and Social Transformations examines the reciprocal relationship between religio, modernity and social change. the book focuses on the world's three major missionary religions - Buddhism, Christianity and Islam. it explores how these three traditions are responding to some of the most challenging issues associated with globalisation, including the role of religion in the fall of communism; the tension between religion and feminism; the compatibility of religion and human rights; and whether ancient religions can accomodate new challenges such as environmentalism.
