Stanford University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this book, which provides a comparative analysis of the politics of religion in Israel and Turkey. The book investigates why religion has assumed a pivotal role in so many countries where secularization has seemed to have consolidated its roots and how religion's growing political power will affect world politics. It explores the global rise of religion and the politics of Judaism and Islam as a springboard, and attempts to integrate some disconnected debates and contribute to analytical endeavors in some loosely linked communities. The book also offers an inside-out assessment of religious parties and evaluates their positions on a range of issues vis-a-vis democracy, through an inductive approach.

Keywords:   politics of religion, Israel, Turkey, secularization, world politics, Judaism, Islam, religious parties
