About the Authors
  • This is the first in-depth study of relations between the Anglican Church and other faiths in the Prison Service Chaplaincy. It examines the increasingly controversial role of Anglican chaplains in facilitating the religious and pastoral care of the increasing population of prisoners from non-Christian backgrounds. Drawing useful contrasts with the situation in the United States, it shows how the struggle for equal opportunities in a multi-faith society is politicizing relations among the Church, the state and religious minorities in England.

    • First book-length study of religion in UK prisons
    • Highlights close relation between religion and politics in UK, and draws useful contrast with USA
    • Raises important questions about truth of equal opportunities in multi-faith society
