JUERGENSMEYER, M. K.,
The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Violence.
Oxford University Press, 2015. 672p. Paperback. Series: Oxford Handbooks. The authors of the volume's forty essays, who represent many disciplines including religion, anthropology, sociology, and political science, among others, offer a variety of ways of construing and explaining that relationship in both tradition-specific and cross-cultural contexts. The volume is thus a good resource for teaching as well as for brief introductions to the history of religion and violence in multiple traditions and to theories of religion and violence from multiple disciplines.
