This book explores the challenges that Asian immigrants face when their religion - and consequently culture - is 'remade in the USA'. Peppered with stories of individual people and how they actually live their religion, this informative book gives an overview of each religion's beliefs, a short history of immigration - and discrimination - for each group, and how immigrants have adapted their religious beliefs since they arrived. Along the way, the roles of men and women, views towards dating and marriage, the relationship to the homeland, the 'brain drain' from Asia of scientists, engineers, physicians, and other professionals, and American offshoots of Asian religions, such as the Hare Krishnas and Transcendental Meditation (TM), are discussed.
