Religion and the Domestication of Dissent by Russell T. McCutcheon

Book Description

Since the events of 9/11 the representation of Islam has increasingly come adrift from its actuality. Scholars and pundits have effectively demonised a whole faith by wilfully apportioning blame and by ignoring the differences within the Islamic movement. 'Religion and the Domestication of Dissent' examines how the classifications we use to name and negotiate our social worlds - notably 'religion' - are implicitly political. The study ranges widely from contemporary film and art to the War on Terror and will be invaluable to readers interested in the politics behind the portrayal of dissenting religious groups.

Books By Author Russell T. McCutcheon

Entanglements by Russell T. McCutcheon Entanglements, Paperback (March 2014)

Entanglements attempts to argue against those who claim that scholarship on the category religion is only of secondary interest, in that it fails to do primary research on real religions. The volume collects eighteen responses, written across twenty years, that each exemplify the inevitably situated, give-and-take nature of all academic debate.

Religious Experience by Russell T. McCutcheon Religious Experience, Paperback (November 2012)

This Reader presents writings from both those who assume the existence and possible universality of religious experience and those who question the very rhetoric of "experience".

Introducing Religion by Russell T. McCutcheon Introducing Religion, Hardback (January 2008)
