Reviews

'This is a fresh and highly informative volume which highlights the diversity and complexity of African New Religious Movements outside the African continent. The authors provide penetrating and provocative insights into African New Religious Movements, confounding earlier interpretations of African religions as exclusively African phenomena. I recommend this volume very strongly to scholars and students of religion, Africanists, anthropologists and general readers.'Ezra Chitando, University of Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe'This volume provides a valuable set of studies of diasporic African new religious movements (whether Christian, Islamic, Jewish or African-derived) from Europe and North America to Brazil and China. But perhaps its principal contribution is the focus on the public representation and recognition of these burgeoning movements, a perception that is largely negative. The contributors - both scholars and religious practitioners - provide important insights on the interactions between these religious communities and their host societies.'Rosalind I.J. Hackett, University of Tennessee, USA
