"In this impressive work, dealing with a theme of persistent (indeed, on some counts, increasing) public significance, the author follows up a sustained historical and conceptual discussion of the relations between political and religious power with a penetrating analysis of some of their major contemporary problematics. Throughout, the scholarly intensity of Joppke's argument is matched by his capacity for clear, literate exposition, rendering the book a very valuable contribution to the literature on its topic." Gianfranco Poggi, University of Virginia "The Secular State Under Siege takes on large and controversial questions with Joppke's characteristic verve and lucidity. Even those who disagree with parts of the argument will find the book engaging and illuminating." Rogers Brubaker, University of California, Los Angeles "Highly recommended." Choice "The Secular State Under Siege is a timely book that unpacks the relationship between religion and politics 'from a historical and institutional perspective with a dual focus on Western Europe and Northern America, Christianity and Islam.' It makes an important contribution to the growing literature on the role of public religion in society and politics. I would recommend this book to those who are interested in the idea of secularism and the relationship between religion and state in Europe and the USA. NJMR "Joppke succeeds in presenting a densely packed, yet highly readable, scholarly introduction to two of the most important topics concerning religion and politics in the West today. This is no small accomplishment and he exhibits a remarkable facility with scholarly material in multiple fields as well as larger contexts on either side of the Atlantic." Reading Religion
