Dr Adam Yuet Chau's new book, Religion in China: Ties That Bind, will be published next spring by Polity Press.

Forthcoming in March, 2019 (paperback, hardback to follow in April 2019) from Polity Press, Religion in China: Ties that Bind is the latest boook by Dr Adam Yuet Chau, University Senior Lecturer in the Anthropolgy of Modern China.

In recent years, there has been an astonishing revival of religious practices in China. Looking beyond numerical counts of religious practitioners, temples and churches, anthropologist Adam Yuet Chau's vivid study explores how religion is embedded in contemporary Chinese lives and society, from personal devotion to community-wide festivals.
