From Britain to the Caribbean, diasporic Hindus have substantially reformed their beliefs and practices in accordance with their historical and social circumstances.

In this theoretically innovative analysis Steven Vertovec examines:* the historical construction of the category Hinduism in India* the formation of a distinctive Caribbean Hindu culture during the nineteenth century* the role of youth groups in forging new identities during Trinidads Hindu Renaissance* the reproduction of regionally based identities and frictions in Britains Hindu communities* the differences in temple use across the diaspora.This book provides a rich and fascinating view of the Hindu diaspora in the past, present and its possible futures.
