Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali studied theology at Cambridge, going on to become only the second non-white bishop in England and the first diocesan bishop. He is a consultant to the Prime Minister on Muslim affairs.

Nazir-Ali sets out fundamental guidelines on the role of religion in society and its relationship to nationalism, ideology and political institutions, and examines Christian-Muslim dialogue with particular relationship to the rise of Arab, Indian and Turkish nationalism. Of particular concern is the relationship of religion to law and the justifiability of armed conflict.

Editorial Reviews

¿ "Anglican Bishop Nazir-Ali, born of Christian and Islamic parentage, speaks with integrity to the issue of social justice, politics, and the interplay of religious conviction born of a certain multiculturalism in the modern experience. This book is erudite and thoughtful, intellectually and politically/socially well-informed and assumes the same of its audience. Recommended for modern religion and international relations collections." -Library Journal, May 2006
