Reviews

"The need for boldly comparative and theoretically sophisticated work on diasporas has become increasingly obvious in recent years. This book responds to that need brilliantly as it crosses disciplinary boundaries in presenting case studies of interactions between religion, diaspora and citizenship from around the world. Taken together, the chapters present us with methodological as well as theoretical inspiration. They also encourage us to consider still wider questions, about the connections and disjunctions between forms of political, cultural and religious belonging, and the links between territory and association in human life, past and present." - Simon Coleman, University of Toronto, Canada

"Balancing rights and responsibilities, finding a meaningful place to dwell within the nation state, and contributing to its history, society and vision for the future without forsaking one's own memories and connections with other times and places is what active diasporic citizenship is all about. And it is not new. It is important social and cultural work to which migrants bring a strong sense of identity, moral boundaries and theological commitments. The authors writing in this timely volume take this work seriously, looking beneath current fears and assumptions about religion and the global order at how religious minorities in diaspora have sustained their communities and traditions whilst negotiating for recognition and participation as citizens." - Kim Knott, University of Lancaster, UK
