Haynes (London Metropolitan Univ.), who leans toward the liberal institutionalist camp, offers relatively objective coverage of the basics for a course on religion and world politics. This book introduces college students to concepts related to religion (transnational religious actors and movements) as it increasingly affects and is affected by international relations, globalization, conflict, and conflict resolution. The author discusses IR theories that until recently downplayed the role of religion, and the recent resurgence of religion despite the "secularization theory" that assumed the collapse of religious identification except for private displays of faith. Haynes offers explanations for religious resurgence, for good and ill, in seven chapters of examples of religion as "soft or cultural power" that influences social and political issues globally. He then highlights religious influence as revealed in the US, Europe (mostly Islam), Africa (mostly Christian), Middle East, South Asia (India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka), and Pacific Asia (Confucianism in China and Buddhism in Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia). The volume has the strengths of a textbook (breadth) and some unavoidable weaknesses (lack of depth in some countries or cultures examined). Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and undergraduates.

Not so very long ago it seemed reasonable to assert that the influence of religion on global politics was on the wane. As the Western world became increasingly secular and the process of globalisation deepened, it seemed inevitable - on the surface at least - that the voice of religion was to be heard softly if it was to be heard at all. This has now changed, and changed perhaps irrevocably. As Jeff Haynes argues in this thought-provoking and important new book, various religious 'actors' are now significantly involved in international relations and have become a crucial influence on policy in a post-Westphalian world. International Relations and Religion guides the reader through the complex issues at the heart of this topic with clarity and insight. This updated second edition starts with a close reading of the many theoretical and analytical concepts - notably Huntington and the clash of civilisations - that have grown up around this area and then concludes with a summary of the issues under discussion and attempts to put into context what it means to live in a world that is increasingly shaped by a whole host of diverse religious groups. Essential reading for students of International Relations and Politics.
