Take two: The New Cold War? Religious Nationalism Confronts the Secular State, Mark Juergensmeyer (1993)

For a full review, see my Patreon

Another one of my Co-Op Bookshop purchases from 15 years ago, this one bought sometime after May 2008 for $10 (a fifth of the recommended retail price), so it was very cheap. This is par for the course, and I find it amazing that it’s possible to buy really inexpensive things that are so interesting and rewarding. The author of this book is 81 years old, so he must’ve been exposed to a good deal of triumphalism. The book shows that the West had, even in the 90s, nothing to crow about. Events would demonstrate just how little.
