"This book represents a remarkable achievement. It not only offers a wide and comprehensive introduction to religion and development in theory and practice, it also propels the study of religion into a more truly global frame of reference.

"A valuable and comprehensive overview of what has become a mature field of study. Twenty-nine carefully researched chapters demonstrate that religion can no longer be pushed to the margins in analyses of economic development. The case studies in this volume will define the field and inspire future research." –Erica Bornstein, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA
Reseña del editor:
This Handbook provides a cutting-edge survey of the state of research on religions and global development. Part one highlights critical debates that have emerged within research on religions and development, particularly with respect to theoretical, conceptual and methodological considerations, from the perspective of development studies and its associated disciplines. Parts two to six look at different regional and national development contexts and the place of religion within these. These parts integrate and examine the critical debates raised in part one within empirical case studies from a range of religions and regions. Different religions are situated within actual locations and case studies thus allowing a detailed and contextual understanding of their relationships to development to emerge. Part seven examines the links between some important areas within development policy and practice where religion is now being considered, including:
Taking a global approach, the Handbook covers Africa, Latin America, South Asia, East and South-East Asia, and the Middle East. It is essential reading for students and researchers in development studies and religious studies, and is highly relevant to those working in area studies, as well as a range of disciplines, from theology, anthropology and economics to geography, international relations, politics and sociology.
