Description
Religion has been both the tool and the foil of totalitarian governments, argues Michael Burleigh, who here profiles such dictators as Hitler, Stalin, and Franco, each of whom quashed existing religions while substituting an invasive "state religion" to control their public. Organized religion, while sometimes too timid, is shown as a form of active resistance; Pope Pius XII and the Catholic Church, often maligned for their silence during the Holocaust, are seen more favorably here. From Northern Ireland to communist Poland to the War on Terror, Burleigh's intelligent and opinionated chronicle covers a timely topic that is often too close at hand to be accurately seen.
