The book is based on a series of papers presented at a conference in Milan (2016) and then rewritten and revised for this book. All the papers were selected on the basis of representing a cross section of different cultural and national perspectives (Italian, British, Kurdish, Turkish, Ukrainian) in a variety of different locations (Ukraine, Northern Ireland, Iraq, Syria, China, Lebanon, Turkey, Georgia). In addition, we include one theoretical chapter examining the history and role of religion in social science analysis so as to give the reader a general orientating perspective from which to understand the following chapters. This in turn has enabled us to identify key points in all the chapters of more general interest to an understanding of the role of religion and violence in the contemporary world.

Abstract

The book is based on a series of papers presented at a conference in Milan (2016) and then rewritten and revised for this book. All the papers were selected on the basis of representing a cross section of different cultural and national perspectives (Italian, British, Kurdish, Turkish, Ukrainian) in a variety of different locations (Ukraine, Northern Ireland, Iraq, Syria, China, Lebanon, Turkey, Georgia). In addition, we include one theoretical chapter examining the history and role of religion in social science analysis so as to give the reader a general orientating perspective from which to understand the following chapters. This in turn has enabled us to identify key points in all the chapters of more general interest to an understanding of the role of religion and violence in the contemporary world.
