Summary
"While many Americans expect that immigrants will trade in one membership card for another, God Needs No Passport argues that many keep one foot in their countries of origin by participating in religious institutions - made possible by technology and the ease of travel - that are a powerful but little-known force in today's world." "Sociologist Peggy Levitt's account argues that immigrants are changing the face of religious diversity in the United States, help to make American religion just as global as U.S. corporations. In a book with stunning implications for today's immigration debates - in which commentators routinely refer to a "clash of civilizations"--Levitt shows that the realities of religion and migration are subtly challenging the very definition of what it means to be an American."--Jacket
