9780814716014: New York Glory: Religions in the City (Religion, Race, and Ethnicity)

Is New York a post-secular city? Massive immigration and cultural changes have created an increasingly complex social landscape in which religious life plays a dynamic role. Yet the magnitude of religion's impact on New York's social life has gone unacknowledged.

New York Glory gathers together for the first time the best research on religion in contemporary New York City. It includes contributors from every major research project on religion in New York to provide a comprehensive look at the current state of religion in the city. Moving beyond broad surveys into specific case studies of communities and institutions, it provides a window onto the diversity of religious life in New York.

From Italian Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, and Russian Jews to Zen Buddhists, Rastafarians, and Pentecostal Latinas, New York Glory both captures the richness of religious life in New York City and provides an important foundation for our understanding of the current and future shape of religion in America.

About the Author:

Tony Carnes directs the Seminar on Contents and Methods in the Social Sciences at Columbia University, the International Research Institute on Values Changes, and the Research Institute for New Americans. He is the coeditor of New York Glory: Religions in the City (NYU Press, 2001).

Review:

"A first and welcomed attempt to map the spiritual landscape of New York City. New York Glory covers deftly the old changing denominations as well as the new immigrant religions. Old assumptions about secular Gotham may need some revision after reading this broad collection."

-Jose Casanova,author of Public Religions in the Modern World

"This helpful sourcebook strives to be ‘anatomically correct' to the religious demography of New York, providing more on Catholics and Jews, Hispanics and African Americans, than Buddhists, Methodists, or New Age devotees. There's virtue in this approach, and the texture is rich. If you think of New York as a monument to secularity—or as positively the work of the Devil—this book will make you think again."

-John Stratton Hawley,Barnard College, Columbia University

"The editors are to be encouraged for gathering together original material from some of the most current research on relgions in the city."

-American Jewish History

"These two edited volumes bring together a variety of authors to offer a rear combination: they focus on religion in urban America and on particular cities, namely New York City and Chicago...They are necessary reading for anyone who seeks to understand this area."

-Sociology of Religion

"In New York Glory the usually peripheral becomes foreground, and the core background."

-Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion
