"This book is an ambitious and highly readable study. Acclaimed by senior scholars in the field, and deservedly so... Intelligent and wide-ranging in scope, yet closely reasoned and elegantly written, this volume will find a home on the shelves of scholars in several disciplines, among them reliion, history, and the social sciences. Howard mananges to stand in the ranks of cultural commentators like Jean Baudrillard." --The Historian
