Missionary Politics in Contemporary Europe by Jose Pedro Zuquete
Book DescriptionWhile Western Europe is widely considered to be the most secularized region of the world, Jose Pedro Zuquete asserts that, in certain cases, intense religion has manifested itself outside the church through political channels. The sacralization of politics is commonly studied in terms of movements and regimes of the past. Offering an innovative political analysis, Zuquete focuses on contemporary movements, developing the term "missionary politics." The author focuses on Umberto Bossis Northern League in Italy and Jean-Marie Le Pen's National Front in France, assessing the literature, rhetoric, imagery, and patterns of charismatic control of these movements. Drawing upon interviews, extensive fieldwork, and abundant primary sources, Zuquete identifies the ways in which these political movements provide members with a sense that the nation is sacred and that its people have been divinely chosen.
