Product Overview

This innovative collection examines the transnational movements, effects, and transformations of religion in the contemporary world, offering a fresh perspective on the interrelation between globalization and religion. "Transnational Transcendence "challenges some widely accepted ideas about this relationship--in particular, that globalization can be understood solely as an economic phenomenon and that its religious manifestations are secondary. The book points out that religion''s role remains understudied and undertheorized as an element in debates about globalization, and it raises questions about how and why certain forms of religious practice and intersubjectivity succeed as they cross national and cultural boundaries. Framed by Thomas J. Csordas''s introduction, this timely volume both urges further development of a theory of religion and globalization and constitutes an important step toward that theory.
