Summary
This collection of ethnographic essays illuminates the 'reading' of the United States of America as a scriptural formation by focusing on the scripturalizing practices of peoples of color. Through the uses of 'scriptures' (broadly defined) majoritarian readings have long (over)determined the nation-its origins, historical development, diversification, cultural boundaries values, textures, and representations. The result is a scriptural formation that functions as a reading formation with a fixed, texted center, a type of scriptural fundamentalism, which seeks to manage and undermine difference
