"The detailed nature of this volume s arguments and illustrations and its good use of previous literature make it invaluable for graduate students and scholars who want to develop their understanding of globalization beyond a basic introduction to the topic. It deserves a place on the shelf of anyone interested in the interconnection between religion, globalization and culture and would be an important reference in any university library." - Mark D. Chapman, in: Studies in Religion, Vol 39, Iss 2 (2010)."
