Editorial Reviews

Review

This eloquent, lucid, and complex work is the product of remarkable intelligence and erudition; it is a profound contribution to the understanding of the cultural hegemony of the West.

(Ralph M. Coury Religious Studies Review)

All articles are extremely well written, exhibit impressive scholarship, and are thoughtful and are thoughtful and stimulating. Asad's criticisms are neither judgmental nor self-righteous but are generally driven by the will to understand.

(James R. Wood Contemporary Sociology)

Format: Paperback
A fascinating book, in which the author argues that "religion" as a historical and political category was created in Europe, an interesting book.
