From the Back Cover:

“...this fascinating book provides the reader with a new and vivid description of a number of prototypes of temple oracles in China and beyond.”—Journal of Chinese Religions
“This work will undoubtedly achieve for the Chinese temple oracle the recognition it deserves in histories of divination. More importantly, as Strickmann demonstrates, the study of such divination sequences has a great deal to tell us of the history of the book, the study of morality books, and the history of cultural contact.” —Stephen R. Bokenkamp, Indiana University

About the Author:

The late Michel Strickmann was Professor of Chinese Religions at the University of California, Berkeley, and a world-renowned expert on Taoism and on Asian popular religion. Stanford University Press has also published his Chinese Magical Medicine (2002).
