  • Alternative sociologies of religion: Through non-Western eyes.
    Spickard, James V. (2017)
    New York: New York University Press.

    Sociology of religion has been bound to western culture, as organization, belief, & morals. The Confucian perspective leads to popular or everyday religion, de-individualized. Ibn Khaldun saw religion & ethnicity as forces for solidarity beyond familism. The Navajo perspective reveals the performative nature of ritual.
