Designed to parallel Laurence Thompson's CHINESE RELIGION, this newly revised and classic anthology, now edited by Jordan Paper, continues the theme that Chinese religion is best studied as an expression of Chinese culture. This new edition retains the best of the previous edition, while providing new readings that are better suited for today's students.
