  • Sex And The Citadelby Shereen El Feki

    Random House Australia 2013; US$ 13.67

    A fascinating, groundbreaking book that looks at changing sexual attitudes and behaviour in the Arab world, and their part in the current popular revolts in the Middle East.

  • Til Faith Do Us Partby Naomi Schaefer Riley

    Oxford University Press, USA 2013; US$ 18.99

    In the last decade, 45% of all marriages in the U.S. were between people of different faiths. The rapidly growing number of mixed-faith families has become a source of hope, encouraging openness and tolerance among religious communities that historically have been insular and suspicious of other faiths. Yet as Naomi Schaefer Riley demonstrates in 'Til... more...

    Oxford University Press, USA 2012; US$ 149.99

  • The Oxford Handbook of Millennialismby Catherine Wessinger

    Oxford University Press, USA 2011; US$ 159.99

    Christian Dispensationalism, the Taiping Revolution, cargo cults in Oceania, the Baha'i Faith, and the Raelian Movement would seem to have little in common. What they share, however, is a millennial orientation-the audacious human hope for a collective salvation, which may be heavenly or earthly or both. Although many religions feature a belief... more...

  • The Oxford Handbook of Religious Diversityby Chad V. Meister

    Oxford University Press, USA 2010; US$ 159.99

    There exists today a rich and abounding diversity of religions in the world-a diversity with respect to both belief and practice.

What should public education reflect in a... more...
