Editorial Reviews

"Perhaps the signature achievement of After Secularism is that these theoretical insights are operationalised via a reading of US domestic politics and foreign policy to show the full constitutive effect of religion at play in the formation of the American polity. This is no small achievement, and the clarity and insight offered in a brilliant chapter on religion and US politics (pp. 147-79) is a must-read for scholars, policy-makers and students alike. Of equal importance, Wilson's model is clearly transferable and promises high impact in IR by aiding and equipping researchers to understand the constitutive agencies of religion in multiple political contexts." - Australian Journal of Political Science
