Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Religion, Globalization, and Culture contains table of contents. In the late 1980s, globalization was still not a very common word in any language. Its use was more or less restricted to relatively specialized debates in the world of business and in certain corners of the (Western) social sciences. Since then, the term has reached the status of a worldwide buzzword, a kind of value-laden mantra by which a wide variety of people in various walks of life and in most regions of the globe mean a great many different, and sometimes contradictory, and things. Like capitalism and the nation-state, religion and religiousness are an integral aspect of whatever we mean by globalization-unless arbitrarily delimited to the contrary-and have been since its inception, wherever and whenever this is located.

Keywords: capitalism; globalization; social sciences
