Written by an experienced teacher, this basic introduction to the anthropology of religion explores key contemporary issues such as: definitions, theories, beliefs, symbols and language, and behaviour. The second part of the book analyzes:

  • religion in the modern world
  • violence
  • fundamentalism
  • key world religions and new religious movements.

Unlike other introductions which have tended to focus solely on traditional anthropological areas, this book also shows how to apply an anthropological approach to contemporary world religions, reflecting broader trends.

Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, this is the perfect resource for students.
