Review:

'An outstanding compendium of fourteen papers, almost exclusively based on recent anthropological field research in Hong Kong and Taiwan on the diverse Confucian, Buddhist, and Taoist beliefs and practices of the Chinese peasant ... This collection is of great value in explicating the structure of the supernatural world as seen by the Chinese peasant, its similarity to the formal imperial bureaucracy, and the effect of economic conditions on the carrying out of related practices.'Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies
