About the Book

A detailed case study of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in Britain. The book studies the particular development of a new religious movement within the context of Britain, and issues relating to minority religions' place within a multicultural but still hegemonically Christian society.

Reviews

'A detailed and well written book deserves to be widely read. This timely and well-told story should be in every University library and would enliven any graduate or senior undergraduate course on Hinduism.' - Hindu-Christian Studies

'A book which is valuable particularly on account of the care with which solid ethnographic and legal material has been assembled' - Ethnic and Racial Studies
