Summary Re-interpreting Durkheim's theory of the sacred, this book sets out a theory of the sacred for use across a range of humanities and social science disciplines and draws on contemporary case study material to show how sacred forms - whether in 'religious' or 'secular' guise - continue to shape social life in the modern world
