Abstract / Description

Europe is no longer the religiously and culturally homogenised territory that it once believed it was. Impacted by the end of the Cold War, globalisation, increasing immigration, and the regional rise of right-wing populism, today's Europe faces the future with fear and trepidation. Luca Mavelli has written a remarkable book which, stimulated by the 2015 'refugee crisis', took shape following the UK's 2016 Brexit vote. Mavelli explores the 'sacred' foundations of Europe's neoliberal citizenship. Also influenced by the Global Financial, Eurozone, and Covid-19 pandemic crises, Mavelli's book is an authoritative assessment of why, three decades after the Cold War, Europe is moulded by 'post-secularity'.
