Book Description

1 Jan 2010 Critical Geopolitics
Over the last quarter-century, evangelicalism has become an important social and political force in modern America. Here, new voices in the field are brought together with leading scholars such as William E. Connolly, Michael Barkun, Simon Dalby, and Paul Boyer to produce a timely examination of the spatial dimensions of the movement, offering useful and compelling insights on the intersection between politics and religion. This comprehensive study discusses evangelicalism in its different forms, from the moderates to the would-be theocrats who, in anticipation of the Rapture, seek to impose their interpretations of the Bible upon American foreign policy. The result is a unique appraisal of the movement and its geopolitical visions, and the wider impact of these on America and the world at large.

Product Description

Review

'For much of the twentieth century political belief and practice seemed to be dominated by great secular visions that competed in their promise of a better world in the future. That now seems like a distant memory. The greatest conflicts around the world today all seem directly inspired by differences in religious belief. Images of worlds other than this one are driving political consciousness and action. The beauty of this collection lies in showing from an array of fascinating angles how much geopolitical competition in preparation for a transcendent world has now replaced historical becoming as the leitmotif of world politics.'John Agnew, University of California, Los Angeles, USA 'Sturm and Dittmer have brought together a range of specific analyses that speak to a wide set of issues. The studies range from elite discourses to popular culture and from theoretical engagements to detailed empirical work. Challenging, powerful and disturbing, this is a much needed volume on a pressing geopolitical concern.'Stuart Elden, Durham University, UK'The collected essays are informative and often fascinating.' Journal of Church and State

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 18 Dec 2013
By David Drusen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You just never know what you're going to get when reading a book about future events. This one is not the one. I admit I didn't finish it, I couldn't it was so bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Book written for PHD's 3 July 2013
By George - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I tried to read this book because it was a gift and because of my interest in end time events. The writers are obviously very smart persons. But the use of 25 cent words that are hard to understand versus 5 cent words that communicate make the reading a tedious chore. Long paragraphs with 25 cent words is the formula for failure to communicate except for those already familiar with the subject. Example: "This chapter is concerned with these geopolitical power relations as they are aligned with American foreign policy mappings of the world and how the changing geopolitical themes present in the dispensationalist writings of Cold War evangelical authors Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye, and John Walvoord are reterritorialized by post-Cold War evangelical authors Joel Rosenberg, Mark Hitchcock and Charles Dyer" page 134
