Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is an ambitious and highly readable study. Acclaimed by senior scholars in the field, and deservedly so... Intelligent and wide-ranging in scope, yet closely reasoned and elegantly written, this volume will find a home on the shelves of scholars in several disciplines, among them reliion, history, and the social sciences. Howard mananges to stand in the ranks of cultural commentators like Jean Baudrillard." —The Historian
