This Open University (OU) reader of sources and comment is designed to document the role and significance of religion in post-war Britain. The reader accompanies two volumes of essays and forms part of an OU undergraduate course starting in 1994. The book gives material on a wide range of traditions, including Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism. Insights are provided into new religious movements, Afro-Caribbean religious groups, and the diffuse beliefs and practices of the silent majority who do not have a commitment to institutional religion. Extracts relate to a range of controversial issues in recent British life, such as inter-religious relations, politics, education, the place of women, sexual morality and broadcasting. Other features include: part of a 10-year OU undergraduate course; prescribed reading for 600 students a year; useful to lecturers/teachers/students of religious studies, contemporary history, politics, sociology, education and social work; and of general interest to anyone looking for primary evidence about religion in Britain.
