520    "Ethnic Patriotism and the East African Revival shows how,
       in the era of African political independence, cosmopolitan
       Christian converts struggled with east Africa's patriots 
       over the definition of culture and community. The book 
       traces the history of the East African Revival, an 
       evangelical movement that spread through much of eastern 
       and central Africa. Its converts offered a subversive 
       reading of culture, disavowing their compatriots and 
       disregarding their obligations to kin. They earned the ire
       of east Africa's patriots, who worked to root people in 
       place as inheritors of ancestral wisdom. This book casts 
       religious conversion in a new light: not as an inward 
       reorientation of belief, but as a political action that 
       opened up novel paths of self-narration and unsettled the 
       inventions of tradition"--|cProvided by publisher
