Paperback
One hundred years ago, secular liberals thought religion would gradually recede from the public sphere and become an exclusively private concern. Today, organized religion is still a powerful political force in most parts of the world. In many, its political significance has grown. Whether religion is an ally or an enemy of pluralist democracy is thus a crucial question, and it provides the theme for this path-breaking collection.
