Editorial Reviews

`The most important contribution of the book arises out of the author's decision to concentrate on missionary itineration (bazaar or street preaching) instead of other aspects of mid-nineteenth century missionary activity ... a very valuable survey of theory coupled with illustrative casestudies that should be read by anyone interested in the dynamics of cross-cultural encounter.'Frederick S. Downs, Journal of Religious History, Vol.24, No.2, June 00.
