Britain and the Origins of the Religious Cold War, 1944-47

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    The chapter explores the ways in which the origins of the 'religious cold war' have roots in British policies, reflecting not so much the instinctual aversion to evil attributed to some American policy-makers, but a more mundane vying for power in strateic locations between two European powers, which brought into play all the traditional instruments of state, religion included.
