Religious Fundamentalism and Political Extremism
Edited by Ami Pedahzur, Leonard Weinberg
Routledge – 2004 – 165 pages
This book explores the relationships between fundamentalist religious belief, political extremism and outbreaks of religiously inspired violence. Is the post-Cold War world increasingly violent and is this violence the result of strident religious understandings of how societies should be organized?
"This is an excellent and stimulating collection. It is part of the new Frank Cass series on 'Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions', which will include volumes on Stalinism, International Fascism, Italian Fascism, Nazism, Euro-Communism and Genocide."
