2. Religion in Disputes: Pervasiveness of Religious Normativity in Disputing Processes, by Franz von Benda-Beckmann, Keebet von Benda-Beckmann, Martin Ramstedt, and Bertram Turner (eds.), Palgrave McMillan.
Religion manifests itself in an array of disputes in different geographical context. Here, the contributors examine such questions through case studies from Europe, the United States, Israel, Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. The conficts range from those involving religious authorities to disputes in non-religious contexts in which actors invoke religious rhethoric and repertoires in settings that at first sight have nothing to do with classical disputing processes. The analyses are grounded in extensive ethnographical and historiographical research and show how different dimensions of the religious may enter into, transform, affect and be affected by the course an outcome of dispute processes at different moments of their unfolding.
