In the Editorial Giovanni Gozzini reflects on the relationship between religion and politics, in which the former seems to have taken the place of the latter in recent years. He analyses a number of crucial episodes from the bloody Algerian crisis and the Balkan wars of the 1990s to the role of religious parties in India and Turkey, the electoral victories of Ahmadinejad in Iran and Hamas in Palestine, and (last but far from least) the political culture manifest in the USA in this second term of the Bush presidency. He observes that, in this phase of a new global terrorism since 11 September, the phenomenon of religion in politics can be utilized as a sort of unifying cover, to all appearances capable of reviving Samuel Huntington’s thesis of the conflict of civilizations.
