Abstract/Excerpt

This introductory chapter accomplishes two tasks. First, it identifies seven different approaches to the study of religion and immigration, outlining the ways that each of these both reveals and limits transnational religious dynamics in the current era. Second, it summarizes each of the chapters of this book, identifying their major themes and how they, together, reveal multiple aspects of African-based transnational religious phenomena.
