The Justification of Religious Violence

How are justifications for religious violence developed and do they differ from secular justifications for violence? Can liberal societies tolerate potentially violent religious groups? Can those who accept religious justifications for violence be dissuaded from acting violently? Including six in-depth contemporary case studies, The Justification of Religious Violence is the first book to examine the logical structure of justifications of religious violence. The first book specifically devoted to examining the logical structure of justifications of religious violence Seeks to understand how justifications for religious violence are developed and how or if they differ from ordinary secular justifications of violence Examines 3 widely employed premises used in religious justifications of violence– ‘cosmic war’, the importance of the afterlife, and ‘sacred values’ Considers to what extent liberal democratic societies should tolerate who hold that their religion justifies violent acts Reflects on the possibility of effective policy measures to persuade those who believe that violentaction is justified by religion, to refrain from acting violently Informed by recent work in psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience and evolutionary biology Part of the Blackwell Public Philosophy Series

Stephen "Steve" Clarke (born August 29, 1963 in Saltcoats, Scotland) is a retired Scottish international footballer and the current assistant First Team Coach of West Ham United.

Playing career

Clarke started his professional football career with St Mirren F.C. before transferring to Chelsea for £422,000 in February 1987. He stayed at Chelsea until 1998, making 421 appearances (the fifth highest total in the club's history) and winning the club's Player of the Year award in 1994. He was a part of the Chelsea sides which won the FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners Cup in the late 1990s. The Cup Winners' Cup final, against VfB Stuttgart in Stockholm, was Clarke's final appearance for the club. In 2005 he was voted into Chelsea's centenary XI, occupying the right-back berth.

Coaching career

Newcastle United

In 1998 Clarke joined Newcastle United as assistant manager to Ruud Gullit, his former boss at Chelsea, and was briefly caretaker manager for one match following Gullit's resignation. [http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/sport/football/news/432333.stm]


After a stint in charge of the youth teams at Chelsea, Clarke became assistant to new manager José Mourinho in the summer of 2004 and was a part of the coaching set-up which saw Chelsea win two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups over three seasons. When Mourinho departed from Chelsea in September 2007, Clarke's services were retained by new manager Avram Grant, although Henk ten Cate was brought in as co-assistant.

Following Avram Grant's departure in May 2008 there was increasing speculation where Clarke's future lay. There have been rumours that Clarke could be installed as assistant manager to David Moyes at Everton FC. Further speculation arose when co-assistant, Henk ten Cate had his contract terminated on the 29 May, five days after Grant was sacked. [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/c/chelsea/7426225.stm Ten Cate sacked as Chelsea coach] On May 31st 2008, he was linked to the Leicester job vacated by Ian Holloway, who was sacked after guiding the club to relegation to League 1 for the first time in their history.Fact|date=September 2008 He was also linked with the job after Gary Megson left to join Chelsea's Premiership rivals Bolton.Fact|date=September 2008 However new Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari decided to retain Clarke citing his 'importance to the club's history'.Fact|date=September 2008

West Ham

On 12 September 2008 Clarke handed in his resignation to Chelsea, hoping to move to West Ham to be assistant to Gianfranco Zola. [http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/steve-clarke-hands-in-resignation-to-chelsea-927625.html] Chelsea initially rejected his resignation, and said that negotiations were ongoing. [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/c/chelsea/7612103.stm] After a deal was agreed between the clubs, Clarke became West Ham's first-team coach on 15 September.
