Laurence Thompson's Chinese Religion: An Introduction, Fifth Edition is unique in its presentation of religious expression as a manifestation of Chinese culture. Part of Wadsworth's Religious Life in History Series, this accessible introduction to Chinese religion adheres to the Series' fundamental mission to explore religion as a means to "ultimate transformation." Continuing to expand on that theme, the author has added a new chapter to this edition that views Chinese religion as a means of coping with existential problems. The Fifth Edition also includes new suggested readings that explore current developments in this rapidly evolving field.
