ReviewsThis landmark collection of essays takes the reader on a journey into the connected history of religions in late modern Asia and Europe. With its focus on individual lives lived in local contexts and integrated into a larger global framework, the book adds a new and fascinating dimension to studies of religious transfers and adaptations.

For opening up such a rich vista of histories of experience while fore-grounding religion, which surely is a key theme in late modern history, while placing these at the heart of connected approaches, the authors of this volume deserve congratulations. This is a volume that is worthy of wide reading by Asianists, global historians and scholars of religious studies and should be read from start to finish; the intertwining of cases generates an assembly which is telling for this age. This assembly gets to the contortions of this period with subtlety and nuance.
