Religion, Conflict, and Democracy in Modern Africa
The Role of Civil Society in Political Engagement
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This book is unprecedented and a major intellectual contribution. No one, in any academic field or government position, can be considered serious about Africa today if they have not read this book. This is one we have been waiting for!"
--Dwight N. Hopkins
Professor of Theology

"This book is an effort by a series of scholars in religious studies to explore the role that religion has played, plays today, and can play in Africa. Though different studies touch on the positive and negative roles religion has played, the most important theme is a belief that religious communities are a major part of civil society and that religion can play an important role in dealing with many problems faced by African states."
