Product Description


This popular essay was originally prepared at the request of Denis Twitchett, editor of the "Cambridge History of China", in anticipation of publication in the second volume of that work to be devoted to the T'ang dynasty (618-907). While that project was experiencing delays, the essay became widely circulated among those interested in the history of Taoism, and has subsequently been published independently. This work sheds light on Taoism, China's great indigenous religion during this vibrant and glorious period of Chinese history. Without these insights, we can have only limited understanding of an important aspect of China's social, political, and of course, religious life. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
