ABSTRACT
Morris et al. claim that, in an increasingly pluralized society, the gap between form and reality has become unacceptably stretched, and examine what are the options for change, including to the religious character of the monarchy. Dittmer and Spears focus on how specific geographies are constructed that tie certain places and peoples to either cosmic good or cosmic evil. Sidorov aims at highlighting an essential additional pillar of Russian geopolitical thinking, Third Romist geopolitics (between or around these three ideological poles, Eurasianism, Westernism, and Orthodoxy-related geopolitics, modern Russian geopolitical imaginations revolve). Yorgason and Chen explore the geopolitical frame that American popular/news magazines use to portray a major religion in the United States: the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
