Towards a Postsecular International Politics

New Forms of Community, Identity, and Power

Edited by Luca Mavelli and Fabio Petito.

Published by Palgrave Macmillan in August 2014.

This volume explores the postsecular as a momentous transformation of the international system which affects existing forms of political community, identity, and power. It encompasses a set of theoretical investigations of the postsecular, an analysis of four case studies (Europe, Russia, the United States, and Egypt), and an examination of the role and strategies of transnational actors in a postsecular world. Written by world-renowned and emerging leading scholars, these essays offer a lively engagement with the formidable challenges of the postsecular transformation of international politics.
