Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘Steve Bruce writes with a forthright clarity outlining the essential issues and background of Fundamentalism and Modernity in accessible form. He is indifferent to fashionable views and writes as he finds by reference to evidence. He is an international authority and his book a major addition to the literature.’ – David Martin, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics

‘Fundamentalism is informative, vigorously argued and thought-provoking, and it presents a powerful sociological perspective on a controversial phenomenon. Focusing on a comparison between Christianity and Islam, it offers a wealth of detail underpinned by subtle but clear theorizing. It is intellectually challenging and yet easy to follow.’ – Alan Aldridge, School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Nottingham
