Summary
"This book is about churches in societies in transition, with case studies on South Africa, Mozambique, Brazil and South Korea, and references to Indonesia and the Philippines. Its fulcrum is the momentous historical 'turning point' in 1989-90 that signaled the end of the Cold War, the end of 'real socialism'; and the beginning of 'neo-liberal' globalism as we now know it." -- Back cover.
