9780199731381: Chinese Religious Life

Written by a team of internationally renowned scholars, this volume provides an in-depth introduction to religion in contemporary China. Instead of adopting the traditional focus on pre-modern religious history and doctrinal traditions, Chinese Religious Life examines the social dimensions of religious life, with essays devoted to religion in urban, rural, and ethnic minority settings; to the religious dimensions of body, gender, environment, and civil society; and to the historical, sociological, economic, and political aspects of religion in contemporary Chinese society.

Review:


"The essays in this volume present data on an important contemporary development, one with implications for insight into the human condition..." --Journal of Chinese Political Science


"This book offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of religious life in contemporary China. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the book situates Chinese religious life in the wider contexts of culture, economy, politics, and globalization. Chinese Religious Life is a must-read for those who want to know the momentous religio-cultural changes in China during the past several decades."--Kwok Pui-lan, author of Chinese Women and Christianity, 1860-1927


"An excellent introduction to religion in China. It is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the various modalities of religious life amongst Chinese people...Highly recommended."--Reviews in Religion & Theology


"Chinese Religious Life is highly recommended for use in graduate seminars and as a platform for further textual, as well as field-based, research. Due to immense changes in state policies and restrictions imposed after the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and the 2012 transfer of Communist Party leadership, Chinese Religious Life has become an even more sensitive and timely topic..." --China Review International
