Religion and power : no logos without mythos by David Martin( )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,272 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

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

27 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and held by 936 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.

19 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a mature assessment of themes preoccupying David Martin over some fifty years, complementing his book On Secularization.

"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.

Specific recommendations for states dealing with dual nationality complete the investigation."--Jacket
