"A Seat At The Table is a valuable and insightful book about a too long overlooked topic - the right of Native American people to have their sacred sites and practices honored and protected. Let's hope it gets read far and wide, enough to bring about a real shift in policy and consciousness.”—Bonnie Raitt "Phil Cousineau has created a fine companion book to accompany the important film he and Gary Rhine have made in defense of the religious traditions of Native Americans. [Native Americans] are recognized the world over as keepers of a vital piece of the Creator's original orders, and yet they are regarded as little more than squatters at home. This book features impressive interviews, beautiful illustrations, and gives a voice to the voiceless.”—Peter Coyote

Religious pluralism has become a powerful ideal in contemporary life, defining the landscape of religious diversity while prescribing modes of acting across difference. Taking this ideal as a starting place, the contributors to this volume treat pluralism as historically and ideologically produced and as a doctrine that is embedded within a range of political, civic, and cultural institutions. Their critique interrogates the possibility that religious difference itself is framed as a problem only pluralism can solve. Working comparatively across nations and disciplines, these essays explore pluralism as a "term of art" setting the norms of identity and the parameters of exchange, encounter, and conflict. Contributors locate pluralism's ideals in diverse sites-Broadway plays, Polish Holocaust memorials, Egyptian dream interpretations, German jails, and legal theories-and demonstrate its shaping of political and social interaction in surprising and powerful ways. Throughout they question assumptions underlying pluralism's discourse and its influence on the legal decisions that determine modern religious practice. Contributors do more than deconstruct this theory; they tackle what comes next. Having established the genealogy and effects of pluralism, they generate new questions for engaging the collective worlds and multiple registers in which religion operates.

“A book and an unexploded bomb may lay equally motionless, but their kinetic potential is vastly different. A bomb may kill hundreds of people, but a book can change millions—think of Common Sense, Das Kapital, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, or The Gulag Archipelago. To that energizing company, add Transforming Terror. This practical, inspiring book cuts through moral relativism by defining terror according to how it affects its victims. It is a luminous collection of wisdom. You’ll want many of these essays in your library forever. I needed to read it and you do, too.” -Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall “Only an anthology could create the mosaic that would display the profound paradigm shift offered here: defining terrorism according to the experiences of the victims—unarmed civilians who are violently attacked or threatened—and not by any ideology or purpose. Each tile in the mosaic offers a catalyst to radical transformation of the calamitously increasing scale of such assaults, from suicide bombers to state terrorism, and offers real hope for a way out of the death spiral. This should be read at military academies and defense departments as well as by teachers and religious leaders.” -Deirdre English, Director, Felker Magazine Center, Graduate School of Journalism, UC Berkeley and former editor of Mother Jones “This collection of writings reveals a wealth of proposals for transforming the combustible conditions that often produce terror, as well as for the reconciliation and healing of terror’s victims. This book is not only an inspired and singular achievement, it is a courageous and bold challenge to a world too often jaded and numbed by the omnipresence of violence to consider any creative alternatives. Here is a work that couldn’t be more timely, relevant or persuasive in its call for us to transform the terror that bedevils us all, individuals and cultures alike.” - Phil Cousineau, author of Beyond Forgiveness: Reflections on Atonement and A Seat at the Table: Huston Smith in Conversation with Native Americans on Religious Freedom "This volume brings together the wisest voices of our era to reveal the prevalence of terror in our world, and its unconsidered consequences. Until a behavior has a name, it cannot be challenged. This amazing collection of wise and beautiful voices challenges our received definition of terror, and moves us a step further toward a world of peace.” - Marilyn Sewell, editor of Cries of the Spirit

Quest for Harmony provides a basic understanding of the cultures and spiritual teachings of four Native American nations--Lenape (Delaware), Ani'-Yun'-wiya (Cherokee), Lakota (Sioux), and Dine (Navajo). The text is always sympathetic, respectful, and, when possible, presented in the voices of Native Americans. Each nation is described in terms of its name, traditional location(s), present population, language, and traditional social organization. At least one story of origin is provided for each nation, followed by a survey of its history from earliest documented times until recent times. At the heart of each chapter, the spiritual worldview and rituals of the nation being discussed are introduced, with sections on cosmology, gods and spirits, rituals, and other issues particular to that nation. Critical issues common to Native Americans such as the pannational spiritual movements and the environment are also covered. Quest for Harmony makes clear that not only are Native American spiritual traditions very much alive, they are also in the midst of a dramatic revival.
