REDP Book Series

New Book Series  Religious Engagement in Democratic Politics

Temple University Press

The Religious Engagement in Democratic Politics series will collect work that explores in theoretically and empirically rigorous ways variations in and determinants of religious presence in the politics of democratic nations  from those with a long history of institutionalized democracy to those struggling to establish free, contested elections and systems of rights and liberties. Books in the series will demonstrate application of one or more of a variety of quantitative and qualitative methodologies to explore the robust and highly variable presence of religion in democracies.
