Faisal Devji and Paul Apostolidis discuss Islamic and Christian fundamentalism, two kinds of extreme religious practice that have recently found new expression in the age of mass communication. Devji and Apostolidis track the historical trajectories of the resurgence in radical Christian and Islamic extremism, and thus bring to the surface underlying features of forms of religious fundamentalism today.
