Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Conversion in the Age of Pluralism contains the table of contents and the preface on the sociology of conversion. Conversion does not have a long history of study as a sociological subject, even though it has a long historical tradition. This may be a consequence of the one-religion specialization of many sociologists and anthropologists of religion, and indeed, the suggestion offered by Max Weber for a sociology of all universal religions has largely remained unheeded in practice, even if it is honored in invocations of his Sociology of Religion as an historic masterwork in the field.

Keywords: pluralism; religion; sociology of conversion
