This is an important collection for anyone interested in globalized and transnational religion in the modern world.
This edited volume of essays focusing on the Gujarati diaspora spans a variety of substantive disciplines, including sociological and geopolitical arenas. It is refreshingly varied in its treatment of the Gujarati diaspora and has both depth and breadth in its insights.I welcome...this work...not because of its novelty value as a niche, diasporic observation, but because it is a multi-layered, sociological enterprise, allocating a substantial role to local and global considerations of agency in this collection a limited discussion of socio-economic and material constraints the many and varied negotiations in Gujarati diasporic lives
