Religious  concerns stand at the center of international politics, yet key paradigms in international relations, namely realism, liberalism, and constructivism, barely consider religion in their analysis of political subjects. The essays in this collection rectify this. Authored by leading scholars, they introduce models that integrate religion into the study of international politics and connect religion to a rising form of populist politics in the developing world. Contributors  identify religion as pervasive and distinctive, forcing a  reframing of international relations theory that reinterprets traditional paradigms.  

Join editor Jack Snyder (Columbia), Courtney Bender  (Religion, Columbia), and contributor Elizabeth Shakman Hurd (Luce Visiting Fellow, Princeton).
Michael Doyle (Political Science, Columbia) will offer comments on the book’s relevance and contributions to the field.
