I have a new book coming out soon (April 12 2012) from Edward Elgar. It’s title is:
Civil Religion, Human Rights and International Relations: Connecting People Across Cultures and Traditions
I have edited the book and have written the introduction and Chapter One, “Human rights: a possible civil religion?” The other contributors are:
Mark Philip Bradley (Univ. of Chicago); Paul W. Kahn (Yale Law School); Bruce Kuklick (Univ. of Pennsylvania); Andrew Preston (Univ. of Cambridge); Joel H. Rosenthal (President of the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, New York); Vibeke Schou Tjalve (Univ. of Copenhagen); and Jay M. Winter (Yale Univ.)
The book is dedicated to Tøger Seidenfaden, who contributed a chapter to the book before he sadly died in January 2011 at the age of 53.
