This book discusses selected works on Chinese religion in the People's Republic of China (PRC) published since World War II. The work begins with brief overviews of religion in premodern and modern China, first by scholars in China, and then as understood by Western scholars. The bulk of the book consists of 1,005 annotated bibliographic entries--works by Chinese writers from the PRC and Western writers from East Asia, North America, and Europe. Though many entries deal with pre-1970 China, the emphasis is on the past two decades, which have been the most productive in the history of Western publications. The inclusion of some 200 entries for this time period by authors from China makes this an important work for students and scholars in contemporary Chinese religion.
