Professor James Miller publishes new book on religion and ecology in China

Queen's School of Religion is pleased to announce the publication of a new book co-edited by Professor James Miller. 

Religion and Ecological Sustainability in China  (Routledge 2014) is a collection of essays that shed new light on the social imagination of nature and environment in contemporary China. It demonstrates how the urgent debate on how to create an ecologically sustainable future for the world’s most populous country is shaped by its complex engagement with religious traditions, competing visions of modernity and globalization, and by engagement with minority nationalities who live in areas of outstanding natural beauty on China’s physical and social margins. The book develops a comprehensive understanding of contemporary China that goes beyond the tradition/ modernity dichotomy, and illuminates the diversity of narratives and worldviews that inform contemporary Chinese understandings of and engagements with nature and environment.
