What is the lure of oppressive ideologies when all they achieve is conflict and devastation? This month we look behind the blood-soaked headlines to explain the political motivations and will to power of the fundamentalist mind. Articles include reports from Pakistan, where fundamentalist entrenchment is holding civil society hostage, and India, where a hard-line upsurge is being stirred for political gain.
There is first-person testimony about the intellectual vandalism of fundamentalist schooling, coverage of how US Christian rightwingers are spreading homophobia in Africa, and a satirical look at free market fundamentalism’s cult of the invisible and unproven. Contributors include: Ziauddin Sardar, Urvashi Butalia, Patience Akumu, Jonny Scaramanga and Robert W Parenteau.
In this month's New Internationalist, Dinyar Godrej investigates the power, politics and persuasion of fundamentalism.
New Internationalist tackles today’s most challenging global issues, confronts inequality and injustice and reports on positive changes happening around the world. An established leader of independent media since 1973, New Internationalist is written for our readers and funded by them. We have no media baron breathing down our necks or corporate advertisers telling us what to do.
