Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Religion in Times of Crisis contains the table of contents, and the preface: Of Crises and Challenges. The book discusses the 2013 meeting of the Religion Research Network of the European Sociological Association held in Turin. It covers not only issues related to religion in Europe, but also in Pakistan, Zimbabwe, and even the United States. The book focuses on Pakistan that shows the most extreme of these examples, but the contrast between how Islam is treated in Switzerland and how it is treated in France also show that historic national differences continue to manifest themselves even though the specific parties to the discussion may change. It finds the Islamic cases particularly interesting in the sense of how much state-based differences shape the kinds of actions that are considered acceptable (and not acceptable) in terms of the role of the state.

Keywords: France; Islam; Pakistan; religion; Zimbabwe
