  • The Myth of Religious Violence : Secular Ideology and the Roots of Modern Conflict
  • William T. Cavanaugh 2009
  • Hardback, 296 pages, 234 x 156 mm
The idea that religion has a dangerous tendency to promote violence is part of the conventional wisdom of Western societies, and it underlies many of our institutions and policies, from limits on the public role of religion to efforts to promote liberal democracy in the Middle East. William T. Cavanaugh challenges this conventional wisdom by examining how the twin categories of religion and the secular are constructed.
