Summary
Swaminarayan Hinduism is rooted in its formation in India at the cusp of the early modern and colonial period. This book explores the new discoveries, recent research and interpretation of the history, doctrine, devotional arts, and transnational developments to provide a foundation for a more comprehensive understanding of contemporary Swaminarayan growth, belief and practice. The themes that trace through the analyses are tradition and adaptation in the historical andsocial process of creating a complex new religious identity in response to social, economic and political changes. The book contains current academic research from several disciplines including history, theology, the arts, architecture, sociology, and migration studies.
