About the Hoover Institution's Herbert and Jane Dwight Working Group on Islamism and the International Order.
This is a sobering account of the ordeal of Christian Arabs of the Middle East in this era of Islamist radicalism.

The millennium of the adoption of Christianity in the Soviet Union, as well as Gorbachev's reforms, has refocused the attention of both rulers and ruled on the role religion plays in an officially atheist state. This book examines the current status of religion in the USSR, the importance of Christian symbols, and the impact that the full-fledged acceptance of Christianity would have on Soviet thought, culture, and politics. By bringing together representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, Soviet religious activists, and Western scholars, this book presents a multifaceted assessment of the contemporary and lasting significance of Christianity in Soviet society.
