about

This clear introduction to the sociology of religion combines a discussion of key theorists with a modern emphasis on the diversity of religious beliefs and practices. Malcolm Hamilton's expanded second edition brings the discussion fully up-to-date, and extends its material on secularization and religious sects, giving a broad comparative view. Drawing on the insights of history, anthropology and sociology, he surveys classic and contemporary theory to give a full picture of the variety and scope of theoretical perspectives.
Malcolm Hamilton is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of Reading. Other publications includeSociology and the World's Religions,Democratic Socialism in Britain and SwedenandClass and Inequality in Comparative Perspective.
