Tongues of fire : the explosion of Protestantism in Latin America by David Martin( Book )

25 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martin, a leading authority in the sociology of religion, here looks at a recent and largely unstudied phenomenon: the rapid growth of evangelicalism in Latin America, in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Central America, and the Caribbean. This growth is compared to similar growth in South Korea and Africa. Martin discusses spiritual gifts and conversions in terms of the changing socioeconomic situation, carefully analyzing the relationship of Anglo-American and Latin American cultures. He notes especially the appeal of Pentecostalism to the newly urbanized poor, to whom it provides a nonintellectual style and a protective network where skills in self-expression and leadership can be developed. An excellent scholarly analysis that is accessible to the average reader and provides a good bibliography as well ..."--C. Robert Nixon, M.L.S., Lafayette, Ind.

Does Christianity cause war? by David Martin( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Martin's bold new work has two main objectives. The first is to present a sociological analysis of the 'enlightened' charge, propagated by Dawkins and others, that Christianity causes conflict. The second is to criticize generalized and unrealistic Christian invocations of peace. The author argues that neither the ideology of reason, nor the religion of love enters fully into the realities of power and violence. Instead, he advocates escaping the rhetorics of praise and blame, and adopting a more nuanced, complex approach to the relationship between religion and violent conflict. Using extensive case study material from Britain, the United States, Latin America, and Romania, Martin argues for an approach that examines the interrelationship between religion, and national and ethnic identity, in specific, definable, historical circumstances. He concludes that religion is a cause of conflict only in as much as it constitutes one 'marker' of social identity, that can, in certain circumstances, for example after the collapse of an empire, be referred to in the search for political solidarity.; Attempting to select a single, generic actor, such as religion, as the cause of all conflict makes no sense whatsoever, since all markers of identity have the potential to bring people together as well as separate them, and will, under definable circumstances, foster enmity rather than amity

The future of Christianity : reflections on violence and democracy, religion and secularisation by David Martin( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a mature assessment of themes preoccupying David Martin over some fifty years, complementing his book On Secularization. Deploying secularisation as an omnibus word bringing many dimensions into play, Martin argues that the boundaries of the concept of secularisation must not be redefined simply to cover aberrant cases. Particular themes of focus include the dialectic of Christianity and secularization, the relation of Christianity to multiple enlightenments and modes of modernity, the enigmas of East Germany and Eastern Europe, and the rise of the transnational religious voluntary association, including Pentecostalism, as that feeds into vast religious changes in the developing world
Religion and power : no logos without mythos by David Martin( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are few more contentious issues than the relation of faith to power or the suggestion that religion is irrational compared with politics and peculiarly prone to violence. The former claim is associated with Juergen Habermas and the latter with Richard Dawkins. In this book David Martin argues, against Habermas, that religion and politics share a common mythic basis and that it is misleading to contrast the rationality of politics with the irrationality of religion. In contrast to Richard Dawkins (and New Atheists generally), Martin argues that the approach taken is brazenly unscientific and that the proclivity to violence is a shared feature of religion, nationalism and political ideology alike rooted in the demands of power and social solidarity. The book concludes by considering the changing ecology of faith and power at both centre and periphery in monuments, places and spaces
Rights and duties of dual nationals : evolution and prospects by David Martin( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book comprehensively evaluates the legal status of dual nationals on the basis of a comparative analysis, with emphasis on practice and law in the United States of America, the Federal Republic of Germany, Turkey, and other selected countries, comprising contributions of both academics and practitioners. Among the legal subjects examined more intensively are the exercise of political rights by dual nationals, including voting and office holding; performance of military service; loss and withdrawal of citizenship; and effects of dual nationality on judicial cooperation, as well as aspects of private international law. The authors pay attention to developmental trends and legal changes in various countries, and also to the philosophical and theoretical perspectives underlying various practices. Specific recommendations for states dealing with dual nationality complete the investigation."--Jacket
