Description

An invitation to an enticing intellectual journey that reveals new landscapes, this book is a major contribution to scholarship and the delineation of the interrelationship of religion and politics.

Secularism and fundamentalism are presented in this book as modern ideologies that purvey mutually exclusive rival images of society. The author brings the voice of scholarly reason first to bear upon the western tradition that has generated these ideologies, and then to describe the Sikh, Islamic, and Hindu traditions that have been used to construct them in India.

An insightful comparison of the traditions is offered, each seen over a long period of time, revealing markedly distinctive historical experiences.
