Religion today is at the centre of all debates and controversies.
While Western societies are becoming secularized, in Africa, Asia, and South America, religions are flourishing. Everywhere politics and religion are intermingled, everywhere religion is moving into the political arena. Attempting to understand the disintegration of religious affiliations where it happens, as well as the strengthening of religious sentiment in other places; analysing their social and historical contextualisation; questioning the various religious and philosophical convictions, as well as their modes of expression; reviewing the way in which the humanities and social sciences apprehend religion and secularity: all this constitutes the focus of the series.
À partir d’une ethnographie fournie et détaillée, ce livre se donne pour ambition de décrire et analyser les formes spécifiquement religieuses d’intégration dans la société d’installation d’acteurs euro-africains et euro-latino-américains.
