New Spiritual Homes: Religion and Asian Americans
Through essays, expressive works and resource materials, this text investigates how religious traditions, movements, and institutions have been vital for Asian Americans, past and present. It looks at how religion has assisted people to deal with the upheaval of migration and other transformations. The essays cover a wide range of topics: Chinese American Protestant nationalism; the development of a Filipino American folk religion; law and religion among American Sikhs; and identity and Taiwanese Buddhism in southern California. The authors seek out what can be discovered at the intersection of religion, gender, race, colonialism, and sexuality.
