Review quote

Religion, the Missing Dimension of Statecraft holds lesson not only for government officials but also for religious leaders willing to take initiatives for peace. It should encourage the growth of diplomatically engaged religion as well as relgiously informed diplomacy. * New York Times * Its contents provide ample food for thought for students of international relations and global politics ... it is a daunting task to derive a degree of generalization and perceive practical implications from these studies. This is generally undertaken with appropriate caution, acuteness and breadth and depth of vision. * Political Studies * This is an unusually stimulating book. Each of its three parts has something commendable and useful for students of both religion and international affairs. * Bulletin of the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies * Eminently readable, provocative, stimulating for specialists in both foreign affairs and religion, Religion, the Missing Dimension of Statecraft must be read by anyone concerned about conflict resolution, and the positive role religion can play in creating a more peaceful and just world. * Bulletin of the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies *show more
