Quanzhen Daoists in Chinese Society and Culture, 1500–2010 covers a range of dimensions of Quanzhen Daoism both as a historical phenomenon and a living religion. The contributors hope that the volume will serve as one of the first efforts in a Western language to advance and integrate the emerging field of Quanzhen Daoist studies with the larger field of modern Chinese studies.
