"This book is particularly valuable for its comparative, historical perspective. It reminds us that today's developments have deep roots and that despite differences, there is much that unites the Asian American and Latino experience. An important contribution to the burgeoning literature on religion and immigration."
-—Peggy Levitt,author of God Needs No Passport: Immigrants and the Changing American Religious Landscape
“This volume benefits from the rigorous format designed by its distinguished editors. What might initially appear to be an overly rigid structure emerges as a format that enables rich and innovative comparisons of a vast diversity of very singular case studies that are only rarely juxtaposed.”
"This path-breaking volume makes a major contribution to our understanding of immigrant religion in America. By adopting a comparative design that examines immigrant groups today and in the past, this well-focused and highly readable collection sheds a bright new light on—and provides often surprising insights into—the way religion has operated as belief system, institution, and community for immigrants both then and now."
-—Nancy Foner,author of In a New Land: A Comparative View of Immigration
