This fascinating and timely volume analyzes data from a four-year study of the religious experience in contemporary China—the results of which will radically transform the understanding of the role religion plays in twenty-first-century Chinese culture.
Focused on the Han Chinese, who make up more than ninety percent of mainland China’s population, Religious Experience in Contemporary China considers that groundbreaking research in an almost wholly new context: though the suppression of religion by communist authorities in the latter part of the twentieth century is well documented, much less is known about the underlying resurgence of religious life within the world’s most populous nation. Until recently, such research would not have been permitted, and the fascinating results presented here make Religious Experience in Contemporary China an essential addition to the increasing amounts of publications on China in the new age.
