  • Religion in Chinaby K. Hughes; E. R. Hughes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 230.00

    First published in 1950. Beginning with ancient times, this volume shows how some of the early superstitions became purified through the influence of the Confucianist philosophy, how a deep strain of mysticism came from the Taoists and how thereby a worship of 'Heaven' and 'Earth' was evolved. Besides the main streams of Confucianism and Buddhism,... more...

  • Confucianismby Paul R. Goldin

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    "Confucianism" presents the history and salient tenets of Confucian thought, and discusses its viability, from both a social and a philosophical point of view, in the modern world. Despite most of the major Confucian texts having been translated into English, there remains a surprising lack of straightforward textbooks on Confucian philosophy in any... more...

  • Religion in Contemporary Chinaby Adam Yuet Chau

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 48.95

    Before the modernist transformations of the twentieth century, China had one of the richest and most diverse religious cultures in the world.

  • Twentieth-Century Philosophy of Religionby Graham Oppy; N. N. Trakakis

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 34.95

    The twentieth century saw religion challenged by the rise of science and secularism, a confrontation which resulted in an astonishingly diverse range of philosophical views about religion and religious belief.

  • Religion in China and Its Modern Fateby Paul R. Katz; Meir Shahar

    Brandeis University Press 2014; US$ 39.99

    Paul R. Katz has composed a fascinating account of the fate of Chinese religions during the modern era by assessing mutations of communal religious life, innovative forms of religious publishing, and the religious practices of modern Chinese elites traditionally considered models of secular modernity. The author offers a rare look at the monumental... more...

  • Tibetan Ritualby Jose Ignacio Cabezon

    Oxford University Press, USA 2009; US$ 21.99

    Ritual is one of the most pervasive religious phenomena in the Tibetan cultural world. Despite its ubiquity and importance to Tibetan cultural life, however, only in recent years has Tibetan ritual been given the attention it deserves. This is the first scholarly collection to focus on this important subject. Unique in its historical, geographical... more...

  • Decoding Daoby Lee Dian Rainey

    Wiley 2013; US$ 92.95

    “ Decoding Dao does an amazing job of making classical Daoist philosophy accessible to undergraduates today. Many years of experience teaching this subject and listening carefully to students' questions have resulted in a book which finally explains Daoism in a way that works for them and not just for experts. This is a great achievement pedagogically... more...

  • Geology & Mineralogy, Considered with Reference to Natural Theology, Volume I, 1836by William Buckland

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 400.00

    Moving away from his earlier belief in a short, catastrophic history of the Earth, this volume shows how Buckland envisages instead progressive change as the Earth gradually cooled as it was prepared for human occupation. Extinct creatures did not die out because they were poorly designed; God loved the dinosaurs and had adapted them to their various... more...
