At its peak, this conflict touched virtually every sphere of social life: schools, universities, the press, marriage and gender relations, burial rites, associational culture, the control of public space, folk memory and the symbols of nationhood. In short, these conflicts were 'culture wars', in which the values and collective practices of modern life were at stake. These 'culture wars' have generally been seen as a chapter in the history of specific nation-states.
Yet it has recently become increasingly clear that the Europe of the mid- and later nineteenth century should be seen as a common politico-cultural space. This book breaks with the conventional approach by setting developments in specific states within a trans-national context, offering a fresh and revealing perspective on one of modernity's formative conflicts.

In discussing the death of Jesus, Sobrino makes appropriate connections to the idea of "the crucified God," with reference to Moltmann's treatment of the same idea, and then to "the crucified people," i.
For me, this was an important addition to my own studies in Liberation Theology and other current strands of thought in theology. I heartily recommend it as a book which makes a powerful case for justice and "Kingdom work" within the context of a fuller understanding of Christ.
