Focusing mainly on Western religion and on the changing role of the United States in world affairs, the authors show how shifts in the hegemony of the United States is affecting religious and ideological trends. Attention is given particularly to the United States in relation to Latin America, South Africa, and the post-colonial world of China, Japan, and the Islamic states. This volume highlights the impact of greater global connectedness on the rise of new religious movements and changing patterns of establishment religion in the United States.
