Description

The Baha’i – The Religious Construction of Global Identity

One of Bahá’u’lláh’s best known sayings is: “The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.” Therefore, Bahá’ís regard themselves as citizens of the world. Michael McMullen examines how this global identity is interpreted and understood by examining the life of the Baha’i community of Atlanta, Georgia. His book is the first sociological analysis of a local Bahá’í community.

McMullen discusses such topics as: organizational structure and authority relations in the Administrative Order, Bahá’í teaching efforts, and social boundaries between Bahá’ís and the wider culture. This book explores how Bahá’ís think globally, but function locally, using their beliefs, their teaching activities, and their institutions to link the two. A pioneering work!
