This study explores the religious consequences of the so-called "end of history" and "triumph of capitalism" as they have impinged upon key institutions of social reproduction in recent times. The book explores the imposition of managerial modernity upon successive sectors of society and shows why many people now feel oppressed by systems of management that seem to leave no option but conformity. Richard Roberts attempts to challenge such seamless, oppressive modernity, through a reconfiguration of the religious and spiritual field.
