Surveying fundamentalist movements in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Buddhism, the contributors to this volume describe the organization of these movements, their leadership and recruiting techniques, and the ways in which their ideological programs and organizational structures shift over time in response to changing political and social environments.Accounting for Fundamentalisms features treatments of fundamentalist movements that are in today's headlines, including The Islamic Group, charged with plotting to blow up the World Trade Center, the World Hindu Party, members of which sparked riots in India by destroying an Islamic shrine, and the revitalized Christian Right in the United States. Why do certain fundamentalist movements act aggressively against outsiders, while others are integrationist or accommodationist, and still others passive or separatist? This book serves as a comprehensive reference source for understanding the dynamics of fundamentalist movements around the world.Table of ContentsAcknowledgmentsIntroductionMartin E. Marty, R.
