From silver rings to ringtones and from clubs to headscarves, we often find the cultural role and discussion of religion in unexpected ways.
Now in its second edition, Religion: The Basics remains the best introduction to religion and contemporary culture available. The new edition has been fully revised and updated, and includes new discussions of:
the study of religion and culture in the twenty-first century;
texts, films and rituals;
cognitive approaches to religion;
globalization and multiculturalism;
spirituality in the West;
With new case studies, linking cultural theory to real world religious experience and practice, and guides to further reading, Religion: The Basics is an essential buy for students wanting to get to grips with this hotly debated topic. "
