Handbook of Religion and Society

Full Product Description

This handbook captures the breadth and depth of contemporary work in the field, and shows readers important future directions for scholarship. Among the emerging topics covered in the handbook are organizational innovation, digital religion, spirituality, atheism, crime, transnationalism, and the relationship of religion to other significant social institutions like work, science, and sport. Specific attention is paid, where appropriate, to international issues as well as to race, class, sexuality, and gender differences. This handbook is the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of a vital force in the world today. It is an indispensable resource for scholars, students, policy makers, and other professionals seeking to understand the role of religion in society. This includes both the social forces that shape religion and the social consequences of religion.
The Handbook of Religion and Society includes 27 chapters by a distinguished, diverse, and international collection of experts, organized into 7 major sections: religion and social institutions; religious organization; family, life course, and individual change; the state and political processes; deviance and social control; difference and inequality; and globalization and transnationalism.
