Editorial Reviews

Timothy Samuel Shah
Armed with impressive scholarship and policy experience, these contributions drive home a vital yet neglected truth: religious freedom is more than a matter of political justice; it’s also a crucial ingredient of political survival—both for religiously diverse nation-states and our multi-civilizational international system.
Akbar S. Ahmed
After September 11, 2001, the discussion on world events tended more to obfuscate than illuminate. We are just entering a new phase of more sophisticated studies, and Religion and Security, which brings together some of the leading authorities in the field, is essential reading to understand our complex, dangerous, and changing world.
