This book examines the role popular religion has played in modern Chinese politics. The popular religion of Nuo will be used as an example of how the new role has enabled the religion to be directly incorporated into the Chinese Community Party's policies, to be viewed as supporting the legitimacy of the regime, and to function as a tool to enhance national cohesion and safeguard national unification. This volume provides new material on the interplay between contemporary Chinese politics, popular religion and economic development in a rapidly changing society of Mainland China.
