Socialism and Democracy is looking for someone to review RELIGION AND THE PROSPECTS for HUMANITY By Alexander Saxton. In this book Saxton analyzes what he takes to be the positive role religion played in social evolution and concludes that it was functional for thousands of years but is no longer functional because of the new problems humanity faces in terms of global environmental destruction . He uses what can be called a Marxian theoretical framework but also criticizes Marx and Engels for not having developed a theory of the role religion has played in the long march of human history.
