Religion, ethnicity, and self-identity nations in turmoil ( )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ethnicity and religion at the end of this century are fused in surprising, creative, and ominous ways. News stories connect words like Orthodox, Muslim, Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant with various movements of peoples. Whereas ethnicity and religion have, in the past, succumbed to secular, urban, technological, ideological, educational, and mass communication influences, they now surface as a freshly volatile force in world cultures. To overcome these conventional influences, people establish personal and group identity, mutual security, and empowerment by creatively merging their ethnicity and religion. This collection of essays examines, in Martin Marty's terms, the "explosion of public faith and aggressive action."
Fundamentalisms and the state : remaking polities, economies, and militance by Martin E Marty ( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This third volume of the Fundamentalism Project provides a systematic overview of the advances made by antisecular religious movements over the past twenty-five years. The distinguished contributors to this volume - economists, political scientists, religious historians, social anthropologists, and sociologists - focus on the impact these movements have had on national economies, political parties, constitutional issues, and international relations on five continents and within the religious traditions of Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism. Do fundamentalisms tend toward political activism, and how successful have they been in remaking political structures? To answer this question and others, the contributors discuss the anti-abortion movement in the U.S., the Islamic war of resistance in Afghanistan, and Shiite jurisprudence in Iran. Martin E. Marty and R. Scott Appleby conclude the volume with a synthetic statement of fundamentalist impact on polities, economies, and state security. The Fundamentalism Project is a monumental undertaking by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences that involves an international group of scholars. Taken together, the volumes in this series will become a standard reference for educators and policy analysts for years to come
Accounting for fundamentalisms : the dynamic character of movements by American Academy of Arts and Sciences ( Book )
12 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This fourth volume of the Fundamentalism Project provides a comprehensive analysis of the ideologies and behaviors of "fundamentalist" movements, both in their internal dynamics and in their attitudes toward the outside world. Surveying fundamentalist movements in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Buddhism, the distinguished contributors to this volume describe the organization of these movements, their leadership and recruiting techniques, and the ways in which their ideological programs and organizational structures shift over time in response to changing political and social environments. Accounting for Fundamentalisms features treatments of fundamentalist movements that are in today's headlines, including the Islamic Group, members of which were charged with plotting to blow up the World Trade Center; the World Hindu Party, members of which sparked riots in India by destroying an Islamic shrine; and the revitalized Christian Right in the United States. Why do certain fundamentalist movements act aggressively toward outsiders, while others are integrationist or accommodationist, and still others passive or separatist? Drawing upon world-renowned experts in four major areas of the world with an introduction by the editors and a framing conclusion, this book is the first concerted effort to understand the dynamics of fundamentalist movements around the world. The Fundamentalism Project is a monumental undertaking by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences involving an international group of scholars. Taken together, the volumes in this series will become a standard reference for educators and policy analysts for years to come
Fundamentalisms comprehended by American Academy of Arts and Sciences ( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume marks the culmination of the Fundamentalism Project, the landmark series that brings together scholars from around the world to explore the nature and impact of fundamentalist movements in the twentieth century. The four previous volumes provide the most comprehensive information available on the social, political, cultural, and religious contexts of fundamentalism in the major religious traditions." "In this fifth volume, the distinguished contributors return to and test the project's beginning premise: that fundamentalisms in all faiths share certain "family resemblances." Several of the essays reconsider the project's original definition of fundamentalism as a reactive, absolutist, and comprehensive mode of anti-secular religious activism. Some contributors challenge the idea that fundamentalism is a distinctively modern phenomenon, while others question whether the term "fundamentalist" can accurately be applied to movements outside Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Several of the essays also employ new approaches, drawn from literary criticism and from psychology, in their assessments of the problems of comparing fundamentalisms."--Jacket
Fundamentalisms and society : reclaiming the sciences, the family, and education by American Academy of Arts and Sciences ( Book )
9 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, the second volume of the Fundamentalism Project, provides a systematic overview of the advances made by antisecular religious movements over the past twenty-five years and shows the impact these movements have had on human relations, education, women's rights, and scientific research. The essays consider developments within the religious traditions of Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism in over a dozen nations. What do individual fundamentalist movements regard as the foundations for and limits of knowledge? What do they understand the proper role of science to be? And how do their world views determine the application of technology? The distinguished contributors to this volume - anthropologists, historians of religion, historians of science, and sociologists - address these and other questions through a discussion of topics such as educational structures of Hindu revivalism, women in fundamentalist Iran and Pakistan, and the creationist cosmos of Protestant fundamentalism. In a concluding essay, William H. McNeill situates contemporary fundamentalisms within a world historical context. The Fundamentalism Project is a monumental undertaking by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences that involves an international group of scholars. Taken together, the volumes in this series will become a standard reference for educators and policy analysts for years to come
The ambivalence of the sacred : religion, violence, and reconciliation by R. Scott Appleby ( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Terrorists and peacemakers may grow up in the same community and adhere to the same religious tradition. The killing carried out by one and the reconciliation fostered by the other indicate the range of dramatic and contradictory responses to human suffering by religious actors. This book explains what religious terrorists and religious peacemakers share in common, what causes them to take different paths in fighting injustice, and how a deeper understanding of religious extremism can and must be integrated more effectively into our thinking about tribal, regional, and international conflict

Church and age unite! : the modernist impulse in American Catholicism by R. Scott Appleby ( Book )
8 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This comprehensive study offers the first book-length examination of the influence of modernism of the intellectual life of the American Catholic community at the beginning of the twentieth century. R. Scott Appleby chronicles the story from 1895, when American Catholic priest John Zahm attempted to reconcile post-Darwinian theories of evolution with Catholic theism, to 1910, when former priest and radical Modernist William L. Sullivan published his Letters to His Holiness Pope Pius X, repudiating Roman authority." "Appleby focuses on the ways in which certain priests, scientists, and scholars approached the vital topics of the day--human evolution, the salience of democratic principles and institutions for the vitality of Catholicism, the role of the will and intellect in the assent of faith--by appropriating the insights of the European Catholic Modernists. The Americans probed beyond the limits of the dominant Roman neo-scholasticism and retrieved models, images, and concepts from the apostolic and early medieval eras of church history. As the first experiment with a pluralism of methods and sources in American Catholic theology and philosophy, Appleby argues, this was also an attempt to construct a viable Catholic apologetics that would speak to the experiences of American citizens. Because this enterprise resembled that of the condemned Europeans, the Americans also fell under a cloud of suspicion and original research was suspended for a generation."--Jacket
