Reviews

`Richard Roberts has assembled strong collection of high quality essays … The present edition serves as an exempler of interdisciplinary analysis of religions in socio-cultural context. Anthropology, religious studies and sociology are brought together without retentivenss wih regard to subject boundries to engage constructively clearly with a single, if widely-ramifying poblemaic, the religion/capitalism matrix, partiularly in its state of relative flux in the condition of late modernity.' - Jrl of Contemporary Review
