uropean far-right parties have developed close relationships with Russia, based both on ideology and strategy. These parties see in President Vladimir Putin the model of a strong, conservative leader who defends traditional values and opposes the decadent West. Since most far-right parties are at the same time anti-American and against European integration, they also see a close relationship with Russia as a necessary foothold in order to achieve the gradual disassociation of their countries from Euro-Atlantic institutions. The Kremlin views these parties as possibly being useful to expand Russia’s geopolitical influence. This unholy alliance should be emphasised and condemned more often in Europe.

An Unholy Alliance offers a dissenting view to the claim by a growing number of scholars that Sports are a new religion. The last few years have seen a spate of books that might be classified by a genre called "Sports Apologetics," that is, arguments defending or celebrating in one way or another the familiar and ongoing alliance in America between sports and religion. Recently, claims have been made by scholars that sports are an authentic religion in and of themselves. They make this startling assertion not by showing connections with the teachings of Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, or Moses, but by parallels between the rites of modern games and those of preliterate man that were "religious" in nature because they were designed to propitiate powers and to ward off evil for the tribes employing them. In this evocative book, Higgs and Braswell suggest that while sports may often be good things, they are not inherently divine. They do not focus on wide-spread abuse in sports as evidence for their counterargument. Rather, they question the use of mythological parallels from prehistory as justification for viewing sports as a religion.

Arizona Border Patrol agent Tommy Wilkes is good at his job. He's honorable, he's brave, and he isn't afraid to fight for what's right. When two non-Hispanic illegal aliens try to enter the United States, Wilkes is suspicious. These foreigners are not what they appear; operating on instinct alone, Wilkes goes on the hunt. On the other side of the world, archaeologist James Angeline has suspicions of his own. There has been a shocking discovery on a dig in the Saudi Arabian desert. This discovery could threaten the powerhouse religions of the world. Violence could erupt in the Middle East, but Angeline is not afraid to break the necessary news. As he prepares to unearth the truth, danger waits beneath the dirt. As Wilkes and Angeline wrestle with the truth-and their own misgivings-an unholy alliance is trying to stop them. A conspiratorial group of religious leaders does not want Angeline's discovery released, and they will stop at nothing to erase it ... including terrorism. Will Angeline and Wilkes recognize what needs to be done, or will peace and faith be shattered?

I expand on the effect of religious participation on political outcomes by outlining and testing a series of hypotheses about how the internal organization of religious groups structures their potential and ability to participate politically and how the external organization of groups in society determines their opportunities to do so. Evidence for my theory comes from analysis of cross-national quantitative data as well as close study of the post-communist countries, particularly Armenia and Georgia.
