This is one of four projected volumes to emerge from a massive, Pew-funded study that sought to answer the question: What happens when a revivalist religion based on scriptual orthodoxy participates in the volatile politics of the Third World? At a time when the global-political impact of another revivalist and scriptual religion - Islam - fuels vexed debate among analysts the world over, these volumes offer an unusual comparative perspective on a critical issue: the often combustible interaction of resurgent religion and the developing world's unstable politics. The present volume considers the case of Africa, the region with the world's fastest expanding population.
