Most widely held works by James W Laine
Shivaji : Hindu king in Islamic India by James W Laine( Book )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Shivaji is a well-known hero in western India. He defied Mughal power in the seventeenth century, established an independent kingdom, and had himself crowned in an orthodox Hindu ceremony. The legends of his life have become an epic story that everyone in western India knows, and an important part of the Hindu nationalists' ideology. To read Shivaji's legend today is to find expression of deeply held convictions about what Hinduism means and how it is opposed to Islam."

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While many textbooks treat 'world religions' in an apolitical way, as if each religion were a path for individual seekers after wisdom and not a discourse intimately connected with the exercise of power, Laine's book treats religion and politics as halves of the same whole, and he traces their relationship from the days of Alexander the Great to the secularists of modern Europe, with stops in classical India, China, and the Islamic world"--Provided by publisher
Trying to believe : religion, identity and Anglo-Indian interaction in British popular music by Susan E Bailey( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Religion in Britain is moving out of the churches; few people attend church, yet most people still hold religious beliefs, which increasingly become less orthodox. Traditional notions of God no longer function in contemporary multi-cultural, multi-faith Britain, therefore new ideas must be formed. Analyzin popular music can be a powerful tool to access the theologies of the young, those who have little contact with established religion. Popular music reciprocally reaches millions of people and offers them a voice. White and Asian Britons use music to recreate their social situation and to each other
