It is perhaps not surprising that a pioneering review essay on border politics should focus on the US-Mexico border and by extension, the borderlands of this near-2, mile territorial line seemingly fixed in Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo but then adjusted several times thereafter. With a population of approximately 14 million people in US counties and Mexican municipios 80 million in the ten border states: six in Mexico and four in the United Statesand an annual half-trillion-dollar trade across the border between both countries, the significance of the US-Mexico borderlands can hardly be overstated. In the United States, people of Mexican heritage comprise the largest of the fast-growing census-counted Hispanic population of 18 percent, and significant numbers either migrated across the border or the border crossed their ancestors when Mexico lost half its territory to the United States in the midth century under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

The goal of the American Crossroads series is to expand and deepen our understanding of race and ethnicity in the United States, today and in the past, by publishing intellectually challenging, engagingly written books of substance and broad interest. We encourage authors to cross boundaries of all sorts: between past and present, between ethnic and racial groups, between academic disciplines, between public and private, between local and global, between social and political history and cultural studies. We invite submissions that question the meaning and uses of identity; interrogate the construction of national boundaries; explore relations of class, gender, and sexuality; or promote the elasticity of concepts of race and ethnicity.

This paper explains the development of affiliative ethnic identity: an individual identity rooted in knowledge, regular consumption and deployment of an ethnic culture that is unconnected to an individual's ethnic ancestry until that individual regards herself, and may be regarded by others, as an affiliate of a particular ethnic group. While ethnic culture remains identifiably linked to a particular ethnic ancestry, ideological, institutional and demographic changes have elasticized the link between ancestry and culture, making the formation of affiliative ethnic identity possible. Multiculturalism and its accompanying value of diversity have become institutionalized such that individuals regard ethnic difference as something to be recognized and celebrated.

Rather than organizing the book around particular ethnic groups or religions, Asian American Religions centers on thematic issues, like symbols and rituals, political boundaries, and generation gaps, in order to highlight the role of Asian American religions in negotiating, accepting, redefining, changing, and creating boundaries in the communities' social life.
