An ethnographic study of the transnational and multicultural expansion of Vietnam’s Mother Goddess Religion and its spirit possession ritual, this book is the product of collaborative research by an American anthropologist and a Vietnamese folklorist. Spirits without Borders explores how and why the ritual spread from Vietnam to the United States and back again, the impact of ritual transnationalism in both countries, and the current spread of the ritual to non-Vietnamese in the US.
