Militant Religious Movements-Rise and Impact

From Marx to Freud and Parsons, industrial society has been assumed to be the graveyard of religious faith. The rise of militant religious and ethnic movements in the post-cold war era is a challenge to these secular perspectives. This paper presents an overview of the religious types of discontent in the form of a review of the different interpretations of the rise of the so-called fundamentalist movements and analyses the impact of militant religious movements on education and the media in Iran, Israel, the US, Guatemala and India.
