Synopsis:

This groundbreaking new Norton Anthology enables the six major, living, international world religions to speak to students in their own words.

Edited by world-renowned scholars under the direction of Pulitzer Prize–winner Jack Miles, The Norton Anthology of World Religions provides a flexible library of more than 1,000 primary texts from the world’s major religions―Hinduism, Buddhism, Daoism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam―in six portable paperbacks. This anthology unites foundational works―the Bhagavad Gita, the Daode jing, the Bible, the Qur’an―with the writings of scholars, seekers, believers, and skeptics whose voices have kept these religions vital for centuries, allowing instructors to shape a variety of courses. The selections are supported by the meticulously prepared apparatus―introductions, explanatory annotations, bibliographies, maps, and glossaries―for which Norton Anthologies have set the standard for fifty years.

Unprecedented in scope and approach, The Norton Anthology of World Religions: Daoism brings together over 150 texts from Daoism’s origins in the Zhou Dynasty (1046–256 B.C.E.) to its vital, international present. The volume features Jack Miles’ illuminating General Introduction―“Art, Play, and the Comparative Study of Religion”―as well as James Robson’s “Daoism Lost and Found,” a lively primer on the history and guiding values and practices of Daoism.

About the Author: James Robson (Ph.D. Stanford University) is Professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University. He is the editor of Buddhist Monasticism in East Asia: Places of Practice, and the author of Power of Place: The Religious Landscape of the Southern Sacred Peak [Nanyue ??] in Medieval China as well as numerous journal articles, including “Signs of Power: Talismanic Writings in Chinese Buddhism," "Faith in Museums: On the Confluence of Museums and Religious Sites in Asia," and "A Tang Dynasty Chan Mummy [roushen] and a Modern Case of Furta Sacra? Investigating the Contested Bones of Shitou Xiqian." His current research includes a long-term project on local religious statuary from Hunan province and a project on the history of the confluence of Buddhist monasteries and mental hospitals.

Jack Miles (Ph.D. Harvard) is Distinguished Professor of English and Religious Studies with the University of California at Irvine and Senior Fellow for Religious Affairs with the Pacific Council on International Policy. He spent 1960–70 as a Jesuit seminarian, studying at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem before enrolling at Harvard University, where he completed a Ph.D. in Near Eastern languages in 1971. His book GOD: A Biography won a Pulitzer Prize in 1996, and Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God led to his being named a MacArthur Fellow for 2003-07.
