Reviews and Features

"*Religion and Nationalism in Chinese Societies* is an impressive volume that aims to explore the evolution of religion-state relations, the influence of religion in nationalist discourse and the phenomenon of nationalism as a quasi-religion in the ŸGreater ChinaŒ region (i.e., China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong)." - Jonathan Brasnett, University of Ottawa, *Journal of Chinese Religions*, Volume 47, Number 1, May 2019 "This scholarly work is a much needed volume for the Chinese world with rising nationalistic sentiments." - Mary Li Ma, Calvin College, *Voegelinview*, May 2018

Cheng-tian Kuo (ed.)

Religion and Nationalism in Chinese Societies

This book explores the interaction between religion and nationalism in the Chinese societies of mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Cheng-tian Kuo analyses the dominant religions, including Chinese Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, Daoism, Christianity, Islam, and folk religions, but he also goes beyond that, showing how in recent decades the Chinese state has tightened its control over religion to an unprecedented degree. Indeed, it could almost be said to have constructed a wholly new religion, Chinese Patriotism. The same period, however, has seen the growth of democratic civil religions, which could challenge the state.
