This book offers an interdisciplinary approach to the phe-nomenon of passions in the fields of economy, politics, and the media, drawing on Ren Girard's mimetic theory as a common focusing lens. It promotes a deeper understanding of the religious dimensions of capitalism, the contemporary return of religion to politics and the religious implications of modern mass media.
