      Religions/Globalizations: Theories and Cases
For the majority of cultures around the world, religion permeates and informs everyday rituals of survival and hope But religion also has served as the foundation for national differences, racial conflicts, class exploitation, and gender discrimination Indeed, religious spirituality, having been transformed by contemporary economic and political events, remains both empowering and controversial Religions Globalizations examines the extent to which globalization and religion are inseparable terms, bound up with each other in a number of critical and mutually revealing ways As the contributors to this work suggest, a crucial component of globalization the breakdown of familiar boundaries and power balances may open a space in which religion can be deployed to help refabricate new communities Examples of such deployments can be found in the workings of liberation theology in Latin America In other cases, however, the operations of globalization have provided a space for strident religious nationalism and identity disputes to flourish Is there in fact a dialectical tension between religion and globalization, a codependence and codeterminism While religion can be seen as a globalizing force, it has also been transformed and even victimized by globalization A provocative assessment of a contemporary phenomenon with both cultural and political dimensions,Religions Globalizations will interest not only scholars in religious studies but also those studying Latin America, the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa Contributors.
