In this edition of The Munk Debates ... Hitchens and Blair square off on the contentious questions that continue to dog the topic of religion in our globalized world: How does faith influence our actions? What is the role of people of faith in the public sphere? Does religion fuel conflict between and within nations? For the first time ever, this exclusive debate, which played to a sold-out audience, is now available in print, along with candid interviews with both debaters. Sharp, provocative, and thoroughly engrossing, Hitchens vs Blair is a rigorous and electrifying intellectual sparring match on the oldest question: Is religion a force for good in the world?"--Cover."@en ;
