The book deals with two major debates in anthropology, religious studies,and history. One is the relationship between religious practices and religious beliefs and whether belief is a useful term in discussions of religious matters. The other is the issue of constructions of modern forms of subjecthood and the mechanisms of control and subjugation that characterize modernity. Drawing on a large number of theoretical debates in a number of fields, the introduction locates the book within a scholarly setting.
