Contemporary Religions in China, Paperback / softback Book

Contemporary Religions in China Paperback / softback

Part of the Religions in Focus series

Description

Folk and popular religion is a very significant part of Chinese religious life, especially in rural areas.

Contemporary Religions in China focuses on the religious activities of the lay people of contemporary China and their ideas of what it means to be "religious" and to practice "religion".

Throughout, the discussion is illustrated with case studies, textboxes, images, thought questions, and further reading, which help to capture what religion is like, how and why it is practiced, and what 'religion' means for everyday people across China in the twenty-first century. Contemporary Religions in China is an ideal introduction to religion in China for undergraduate students of religion, Chinese studies, and anthropology.
