This volume seeks to understand the role and function of religious-based organizations in strengthening associational life through the provision of social services, thereby legitimizing a new role for faith in the formerly secular public sphere. Specifically, we explore how a church in a postcommunist setting, during periods of economic growth and recession in the wake of transitions to capitalism, and with varied numbers of adherents, might contribute to welfare services in a new political regime with freedom of religion. Put another way, what new pressures would be placed on the secular welfare state if religious organizations (Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, others) simply stopped offering their services? By examining public perceptions of the church, changing dynamics of religiosity, and church-state-civil society relations, the volume places these issues in context. Miguel Glatzer is Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of the Leadership and Global Understanding Program at La Salle University, USA. Paul Christopher Manuel is the Hurst Senior Professorial Lecturer and distinguished scholar in residence in the Department of Government in the School of Public Affairs at American University, USA.
