Revising and expanding their 1994 publication, The State of Religion Atlas(S. & S.), O'Brien (Chinese Myths and Legends) and Palmer (The Jesus Sutras) offer a fascinating and thoroughgoing snapshot of the world religions' contemporary dispersion, sociopolitical complexities, and global impact. In more than 30 maps and diagrams, the atlas identifies fundamental religious characteristics and presents each religion's location and density within political boundaries. It also addresses many relevant but ancillary issues, such as geographically determined religious fault lines. Easy-to-read charts and strong use of color expedite comprehension. Highly recommended for public libraries and collections focusing on religion, political science, and cultural studies.
