This book addresses from a socio-scientific standpoint the interaction of religions and forms of contemporary capitalism. Contributors explore a wide range of interactions between economic systems and their socio-cultural contexts.

Anthropology, religious studies and sociology are brought together without retentivenss wih regard to subject boundries to engage constructively clearly with a single, if widely-ramifying poblemaic, the religion/capitalism matrix, partiularly in its state of relative flux in the condition of late modernity.' - Jrl of Contemporary Review
