One of the most surprising developments of the last 20 years has been the proliferation of aggressive political movements linked to religion. This timely collection of studies by internationally known scholars offers a multidisciplinary perspective on the interplay between religion and politics in predominantly Hindu India, Islamic Pakistan, and Buddhist Sri Lanka. The authors challenge traditional stereotypes and interpretations of South Asian religion and political conflict and give close attention to the impact of socio-economic conditions in defining religious culture and political action.
