  • Religion and Political Tolerance in Americaby Paul Djupe

    Temple University Press 2015; US$ 31.95

    Religious institutions are often engaged in influencing the beliefs and values that individuals hold.

  • Developing the Deadby Diana Espírito Santo

    University Press of Florida 2015; US$ 74.95

    Despite its powerful influence on Cuban culture, Espiritismo has often been overlooked by scholars. Developing the Dead is the first in-depth exploration of contemporary Espiritismo in Cuba.

  • Religion as Social Capitalby Corwin E. Smidt

    Baylor University Press 2003; US$ 34.95

    While Robert Putnam's Bowling Alone (2000) highlighted the notion of volunteerism, little attention has been paid to religion's role in generating social capital—an ironic omission since religion constitutes the most common form of voluntary association in America today. Featuring essays by prominent social scientists, this is the first book-length... more...

  • Taking Religious Pluralism Seriouslyby Barbara A. McGraw; Jo Renee Formicola

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 39.95

    The clash between the religious right and the secular left undermines any serious debate about the role of religion in American public life.

  • New Religious Movements and Religious Liberty in Americaby Derek Davis; Barry Hankins

    Baylor University Press 2003; US$ 34.95
