Historia, pues para comprender l. a. situación genuine de nuestra sociedad resulta imprescindible un estudio a fondo de las intensas luchas en torno a las creencias, y de los angeles tendencia paralela hacia los angeles secularidad. Con un estilo vívido y estimulante, este libro presenta un vasto landscape del inextricable vínculo que ha unido política y religión desde los angeles Revolución Francesa hasta los angeles Gran Guerra, así comode los diferentes credos que han intentado desplazar al cristianismo. Algunos fueron breves y violentos, como el experimento jacobino. Otros, como el liberalismo o el socialismo, forman parte de nuestra cultura política reciente. Por otra parte, para que también quede patente los angeles contribución del arte, los angeles cultura y los angeles ciencia al "desencanto" de nuestro mundo, Burleigh examina los angeles obra de pintores como Zoffany y Jacques-Louis David, repasa las hazañas de Mazzini y Garibaldi, y analiza las luchas épicas entre Iglesia y Estado a través de l. a. literatura inglesa y rusa del siglo XIX. Revelador y unique, Burleigh maneja con absorbente maestría y seguridad un maremágnum de rules y detalles históricos para profundizar en el funcionamiento de l. a. Historia de una forma nunca vista hasta ahora y que le confirma como uno de los mejores historiadores actuales.
