  • This is the age of fundamentalism. An axis of sacred rebellion cuts through modern experience, challenging all who would accommodate religion to secular culture and a "dictatorship of relativism." Sometimes violent, always militant, fundamentalists have profoundly transformed the religious landscape of modern society. This book offers a critical and empathetic survey of the worlds major fundamentalist movements and the innovative scholars who study them. Peter Huff, an advocate for interfaith dialogue with fundamentalists, covers the full range of the cross-cultural fundamentalist phenomenon-from the American Protestant prototype to the "muscular" protest movements transfiguring every religion around the globe. Examining the pioneers of interdisciplinary fundamentalism studies, Huff provides an insiders view of the academic debates driving this rapidly expanding field.
