Religious Fundamentalisms and Global Conflict. Headline Series No. 301.
Appleby, R. Scott
This booklet examines the irreducible role of religion and authentic religious belief in several regional and international conflicts. Major manifestations of a global religious resurgence are the fundamentalist and fundamentalist like movements, which seek political power to complement and enforce their religious and cultural programs. Chapters include: (1) "The Surprising Resurgence of Religion"; (2) "The Rise and Social Dynamics of Fundamentalism"; (3) "The Impact of Fundamentalism"; and (4) "Interpretations of Fundamentalism." Monographs in FPA's Headline Series are published approximately four times a year and are intended as a resource for teachers and students in the foreign policy area. Each monograph: is about a world area or topic; is written by a noted scholar; is brief (usually 64 pages); is written to be highly readable; and includes basic background, maps, charts, discussion guides, and suggested reading.
