Getting Saved in America:
Taiwanese Immigration and Religious Experience
Carolyn Chen

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Based on thorough, sensitive ethnography, this book explores the role of religion in helping Taiwanese immigrants adapt to American society and develop a new, American identity. It is distinguished by an unusually good ethnography--an especially close attention to the fine-grained realities of everyday life--and by its attempt to wrestle with large, classical questions about the comparative sociology of religion."--Richard Madsen, University of California, San Diego

"Once I picked up this book I could not put it down. It is full of fascinating stories, lucid descriptions, eloquent arguments, and penetrating analyses. Getting Saved in America is a significant contribution to the study of immigrant religion and the sociological understanding of American religion."--Fenggang Yang, Purdue University
