God, Politics, Economy : Social Theory and the Paradoxes of Religion Hardback
Part of the Routledge Advances in Sociology series
The book intervenes into the contemporary debate on religion, politics, and economy, focusing on the field of formation which emerges as these seemingly autonomous spheres encounter one another.
Empirically, it concentrates on examples from literature, theatre, and cinema as well as a case study of the recent revolts in Turkey where a `moderate' Islamic government is in power.
Theoretically, its focus is on the contemporary `return' of religion in the horizon of the critique of religion, seeking to articulate an affirmative politics that can re-evaluate the value of dominant values in religious governance and governance of religion.
