Current interest in the relation of religion and politics is intense in
both the US and Germany. Yet observers are regularly struck by fundamental
divergences between approaches to and conceptualisations of this field on
either side of the Atlantic. This volume, containing contributions by
German and American authors from various disciplinary backgrounds, seeks
to offer some clarification by elucidating traditional and newly emerging
differences between, but also common challenges to, these societies in
issues such as pluralism of values, religious education, the role of
religious minorities, the relation of religion and elite formation, and
religious aspects of voting patterns.
