Religious Fundamentalism in Developing Countries

Synopsis

Using a variety of methodological approaches, this timely book offers a thorough examination of the impact and implications of religious fundamentalism in developing nations. The authors explore why and how adherence to fundamentalist principles affects the social, political, and religious development of such countries as Israel, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, and the Philippines. In addition, they challenge the idea that fundamentalism of this sort is based only on religious beliefs by asserting that it has supra-political motivations as well.
