In the book's second part, the author focuses on the United States - the only nation founded specifically on the principle of a separation between religion and state - and examines the extent to which this principle actually holds and the consequences when it does not. By highlighting such issues as culture wars and religious violence, religion's different relations to politics versus the state, and the fluidity of individual religious identity, Demerath exposes the fallacies underlying many of our views on religion and politics worldwide."

Sacred companies : organizational aspects of religion and religious aspects of organizations by N. J Demerath( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religion is intrinsically social, and hence irretrievably organizational, although organization is often seen as the darker side of the religious experience - power, routinization, and bureaucracy. Religion and secular organizations have long received separate scholarly scrutiny, but until now their confluence has been little considered. This interdisciplinary collection of mostly unpublished papers is the first volume to remedy the deficit. The project grew out of a three-year inquiry into religious institutions undertaken by Yale University's Program on Non-Profit Organizations and sponsored by the Lilly Endowment. The scholars who took part in this effort were challenged to apply new perspectives to the study of religious organizations, especially that strand of contemporary secular organizational theory known as "New Institutionalism." The result was this groundbreaking volume, which includes papers on various aspects of such topics as the historical sources and patterns of U.S. religious organizations, contemporary patterns of denominational authority, the congregation as an organization, and the interface between religious and secular institutions and movements. The contributors include an interdisciplinary mix of scholars from economics, history, law, social administration, and sociology
