Religious Fundamentalism in Developing Countries, Hardback Book

Religious Fundamentalism in Developing Countries Hardback

Edited by Santosh C. Saha, Thomas K. Carr

Description

Using a variety of methodological approaches, this timely book offers a thorough examination of the impact and implications of religious fundamentalism in developing nations.

The authors explore why and how adherence to fundamentalist principles affects the social, political, and religious development of such countries as Israel, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, and the Philippines.

One of the most significant contributions of this volume is that it challenges the assumption that fundamentalism in developing countries is based solely on religious motivations. The authors maintain that fundamentalism of this sort is motivated by both religious and political convictions.

This combination of religious and political motivations allows fundamentalism to exert a tremendous influence on the public policies of these developing nations.

As the social fabric of such countries continues to be developed, it is clear that fundamentalism will continue to play a significant and potentially dangerous role.
