The power and influence that religion and religious actors wield is often underestimated by political leaders and international relations theorists. This stems from a lack of application of traditional social science methodology to this area, a balance which this book seeks to redress, analysing religious issues and their intersection with international politics and international relations theory on a global scale. Jodok Troy illustrates the potential which theoretical approaches such as Realism and the English School have for a better understanding of religion in the context of politics. Furthermore, the book conveys how alternative theoretical approaches from philosophy, theology, and anthropology can help in the exploration of the growing impact of religion on revolutions, diplomacy, war and peace.
