After Migration And Religious Affiliation: Religions, Chinese Identities And Transnational Networks Hardback
Edited by Tan Chee-Beng
This is a timely book that fills the gap in the study of Chinese overseas and their religions in the global context.
Rich in ethnographic materials, this is the first comprehensive book that shows the transnational religious networks among the Chinese of different nationalities and between the Chinese overseas and the regions in China.
The book highlights diverse religious traditions including Chinese popular religion, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam, and discusses inter-cultural influences on religions, their localization, their significance to cultural belonging, and the transnational nature of religious affiliations and networking.
