About this item

This volume draws together the many discrete studies of tolerance to create a global and comprehensive synthesis. This relatively short book will work to connect different periods and a number of key regions, to help clarify the record and the relationship between current tolerance patterns and those of the past. The work is timely in light of the obvious tensions around tolerance in the world today –within the West, and without. It is quite clear that globalization and tolerance are not, at least as yet, easily compatible. A historical backdrop will help clarify the tensions involved, and perhaps promote greater understanding of the advantages though also the challenges of a tolerant approach.
