Editorial Reviews

While religious fanaticism in the developing world has received extensive scholarly attention in recent years, Haynes offers a more nuanced view that focuses attention on the positive contribution that religious beliefs, institutions, NGOs, and individuals have brought to challenges such as conflict resolution, economic development, and environmental sustainability. A skillful blending of theory and case studies.- Howard Handelman, Emeritus Professor of Political Science, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA
