Description - Genealogies of Religion by Talal Asad

Asad explores how religion as a historical category emerged in the West and has come to be applied as a universal concept. He writes that "religion" is a construction of European modernity, a construction that authorizes-for Westerners and non-Westerners alike-particular forms of "history making".
