A review of The New Religious Intolerance: Overcoming the Politics of Fear in an Anxious Age, by Martha C. Nussbaum. America held a particularly lacerating debate in about situating an Islamic interfaith community center, "P" a few blocks from Ground Zero in lower Manhattan.   Individual chapters examine the prosecution of religious crimes, the biblical sources of tolerance and intolerance, the British imperial context of toleration, the bounds of Native American spiritual independence, the nuances of anti-Semitism and anti-Catholicism, the resilience of African American faiths, and the challenges confronted by Reviews: 1.

It is assumed that a decrease in the amount of religious conservatism amongst religious leaders has fueled religious intolerance (Kenneth ). This has in effect has gone ahead to portray them as the main agents of intolerance. The New Religious Intolerance: Overcoming the Politics of Fear in an Anxious Age is an excellent book that deserves a wide readership. Nussbaum has provided liberal societies with a road map out of fear into a more inclusive society, and she has put us all—Muslims and non-Muslims—in her debt.

  America and Europe have prided themselves on being tolerant, but their histories have been characterized by intense religious violence in different ways, Nussbaum said. In contemporary times, she used the case of the burqa to illustrate religious intolerance of Muslims. The real story of religion in America’s past is an often awkward, frequently embarrassing and occasionally bloody tale that most civics books and high-school texts either paper over or shunt to.
