Description

This multi-authored work tackles the problem of how to examine the historicity of identity. Through four discrete case studies, seven scholars of religion expose the disconnects in the academic discourse on diaspora, identity, and creolization, and suggests ways of achieving greater theoretical clarity in the study of identity-or better, identity claims-as it takes shape over time and space.
