It was stated at the outset this book seeks to examine the way the global resurgence of religion is challenging our understanding of how culture and religion influence international relations. At the heart of this challenge, at least for those of us in the West, is the way it challengs our understanding of what it means to be modern, opening up the possibility of multiple ways of being modern.
