'Nations under God: The Geopolitics of Faith in the Twenty-First Century' is a timely contribution to the on-going discussion on religion and politics. The volume brings together over thirty leading scholars from a variety of disciplines such as political science, international relations theory, sociology, theology, anthropology, and geography. Utilising case studies, empirical investigations, and theoretical examinations, this book focuses on the complex roles that religions play in world affairs. It seeks to move beyond the simplistic narratives and overly impassioned polemics which swamp the discourse on the subject in the media, on the internet, and in popular nonfiction, by acting as a vessel for scholarly research on religion. The book presents a balanced analysis of the multifaceted roles taken on by religions, and religious actors, in global politics.

E-IR has brought the study of international relations into the digital age. It has created a truly global public forum on the world wide web within which the latest ideas and issues can be shared in a timely manner among students and scholars alike. If it did not exist, it would have to be invented. - Giulio Gallarotti, Professor of Government in the College of Social Studies at Wesleyan University.

Among the most appealing elements of E-IR is that it brings students of all levels together with professional scholars in an open, relaxed, but sophisticated arena. Rather than the typically sleep-inducing arguments produced in journals, or the often outdated nature of book volumes on subjects of global interest, E-IR has dedicated itself to being fresh, innovative and extremely timely. - Robert W. Murray, Adjunct Professor of Political Science at the University of Alberta, Canada.

E-IR is terrific - just what the field needs! - Anne-Marie Slaughter, Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University.
