Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A lucid analysis in a small compass, centred around a convincing theme...The book stands as an elegant work of analysis and interpretation, organizing apparently disparate events into meaningful patterns, and constituting a definitive framework into which new work on contemporary religious history may be fitted." Times Literary Supplement

"A valuable historical overview to how secularization has developed in two centuries of European history." Journal of Religion

"Remond provides one of the most lucid accounts of the history of secularisation in modern Europe, and tells the story in such a lively and readable style." Muslim World Book Review
