Editorial Reviews

Review

"We have all heard numerous anecdotes about religious persecution around the world. Now, Brian Grim and Roger Finke provide the most comprehensive empirical overview of persecution available to date, detailing both when and where it is occurring. As an added bonus, their research explains why such persecution occurs. This book sets a new standard for research on religious freedom and should be in easy reach of any scholar, missionary or human rights activist interested in the just treatment of people of faith."
-Anthony Gill, University of Washington, host of Research on Religion

"A true global landmark, this work is one of the most important contributions to the struggle for religious freedom and international peace since the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. With rigor and flair, Grim and Finke probe the timeless question of why religious liberty matters. Their answer is theoretically elegant and empirically powerful: restrictions on religious freedom produce persecution and conflict, undermine democracy, and contribute to terrorism and international instability. For policy makers and religious leaders across the globe, this book offers a way to navigate the crucible of the 21st century-living with our differences in a volatile world."
-Allen Hertzke, University of Oklahoma

"This is the most necessary book I have encountered in many years."
-Rodney Stark, Baylor University, author of The Rise of Christianity

"achieves something truly rare in the social world: nomological insight and elegance." -Allen D. Hertzke, Books and Culture --This text refers to the printed_access_code edition.

Book Description

The purpose of this book is to provide an understanding of the extent and causes of contemporary religious persecution and conflict. Its central argument is that when governments and groups in society restrict religious freedom, violent religious persecution and conflict increase. Drawing on a new source of data and multiple case studies, this book documents and describes the connection between the denial of religious freedom and religion-related violence and conflict. --This text refers to the printed_access_code edition.
