Abstract: The book Violence and New Religious Movements, edited by James R. Lewis of Tromsų University in Norway, approaches the problem of relationship between new religions and violence, which attracts public attention because of incidents that were widely depicted in the media.

This book consists of five parts and nineteen contributions. The first part “Theorizing NRM violence” has three contributions by David G. Bromley, James T. Richardson and Dick Anthony et al. David G.
