Review:

"This is a very welcome volume with full notes and index and is recommended for those interested the role of religion in China today." Stuard Vogel, Auckland, New Zealand Journal of Asian Studies Vol. 17.1, June 2015

"Globalization and the Making of Religious Modernity is ambitious in its scope. It is organized in four sections, containing chapters addressing the changing role of the state, local aspects of global flows, encounters between Chinese and Western religious actors, and the transfer and development of knowledge networks. [...] While Confucianism and Christianity loom large in these essays, especially those focused on various kinds of networks, there are a handful of chapters that address Buddhism, both in Taiwan and Tibet, and Chinese popular religions."
Thomas Borchert, University of Vermont, Journal of Chinese Religions

"Globalization and the Making of Religious Modernity in China fits a well-defined niche and accomplishes its intended purpose of "flesh[ing] out the complex interrelationship between religion and globalization" (22) in the last few centuries of Chinese history. Although the editors explicitly claim that the book is not exhaustive, the breadth of topics is surprisingly compre¬hensive. [...] Insights from each of the chap¬ters are applicable not only to the specific case of religion in China, but to the global operation of religion worldwide. Future research--both qualitative and quantitative--will benefit from attention to this volume."
Joey Marshall, Purdue University, Review of Religion and Chinese Society 3 (2016) 261-282
