Summary:This book brings together the varied experiences of different cultural groups in their Diaspora context and provides insight into the various issues they have to deal with. The content of the book is divided into the following broad categories: Chinese Experience; Japanese-Brazilian and Brazilian Experience; South Asian Experience; Impact of 9/11 on Muslim Religious Pluralism; and Issues of Religious Pluralism in the Diaspora. While keeping theory to a minimum, the book focuses on case-studies in the hope this will facilitate scholars to engage in further theoretical work on the phenomenon of religious pluralism in the Diaspora and in answering important questions on how religious pluralism can be conceptualised and which issues need to be addressed in doing so. The material is also useful for comparative studies in the academic study of religion.
