Overview

Williams (Wabash College, US) has assembled 17 occasional papers and book chapters, most previously published, from his three decades of research. They consider the academic study of the transmission of religious traditions and their function in religious communities and in societies; Swaminarayan Hinduism as an example of the power of religion to generate a reform movement in Gujarat in the 19th century, and to form and sustain immigrant groups in the 21st century; and the experience of immigrants from India and Pakistan as they and their children establish religious organizations in the West to facilitate the preservation of their individual and group identities and their negotiations with new neighbors.
