China's ethnic areas account for over half of China's landmass, and have a population of over 200 million. This book examines the current very strong revival of religious faith and practices in China's ethnic areas. It shows how radical, unofficial and transnational denominations and movements are active, often proselytising underground; how the restoration of sacred sites appeals to ethnic populations for reasons and community building and identity; and how ancestor veneration and Daoist rituals are adapted to particular circumstances. Throughout, the book presents the findings of original, detailed ethnographic research; and relates the rich picture presented to discussions about state-society relations, demonstrating that these are more complex than may at first appear, and that they pose a challenge to central control.
