  • Proposes a new theoretical framework to think about what these ideas and institutions mean in today’s society

  • Applies this new perspective to a variety of real-world issues, including insights into suicide bombers in the Middle East

  • Includes radical critiques of the religious and political perspectives of thinkers such as Talal Asad and Michel Foucault

  • Dislodges our conventional thinking about politics and religion, and in doing so, helps make sense of the complexities of our twenty-first century world

Keywords: religion and sacrifice, suicide bombing, power and politics
