This volume brings emerging research on religion and development into conversation with politics. Deploying innovative conceptual frameworks, and drawing on empirical research from across contemporary Asia, this collection makes an incisive contribution to the analysis of aid and development processes.

The contents of this book are very relevant for scholars in several fields, especially as a tool for advancing interdisciplinary research on the topics at hand. This book is well-organized and touches on a wide range of subjects related to the central theme. this book will serve as an excellent resource for researchers striving to construct new or rethought forms of development policy and application.
