  • Offers a unique and enlightening volume for those studying religion and social justice - a crucially important subject within the history of religion, and a significant area of academic study in the field 
  • Brings together the beliefs of individual traditions in a comprehensive, explanatory, and informative style 
  • All essays are newly-commissioned and written by eminent scholars in the field 
  • Benefits from a distinctive four-part organization, with sections on major religions; religious movements and themes; indigenous people; and issues of social justice, from colonialism to civil rights, and AIDS through to environmental concerns
