4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chinese Religions in Contemporary Societies is an accessible, multidimensional introduction to religions in present-day China and Taiwan as well as an in-depth exploration of how religious traditions and practices have been adopted by Americans and Chinese immigrants in North America. The work covers the period since the Cultural Revolution but places its focus on the contemporary global context. Written by religious studies expert James Miller and eight acclaimed scholars, this handy one-volume reference answers the demand for a comprehensive yet highly readable handbook on Chinese religions and their various forms. The work breaks down the complexities of religious traditions, highlighting key issues, themes, and movements, such as the legacy of shamanism in popular Chinese and Taiwanese religion, qigong in contemporary China, and the interpretations and practices of Chinese traditions and rituals in North America. Filling a significant gap in the literature, the handbook demonstrates the impact of social, political, and cultural factors on Chinese religion and identifies the forces behind the prevalence, adaptation, and transformation of Chinese religious practices from a global perspective

Religion and ecological sustainability in China by James Miller( Book )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book sheds 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"--

Daoismo : una introduzione by James Miller( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in Italian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Negli ultimi anni, molti aspetti del daoismo (meglio conosciuto come taoismo) sono stati conosciuti in Occidente attraverso la diffusione di tecniche orientali terapeutiche, come l'agopuntura, e di benessere, come il taijiquan. Per coglierne in pieno il significato, non è però possibile disgiungerle dall'orizzonte teorico e culturale cui fanno riferimento, ossia l'antichissima tradizione filosofica e religiosa di matrice cinese che si incentra sulla nozione di Dao, la 'Via'. L'autore, in questo libro, esalta l'attualità di questa tradizione, venendo incontro alle esigenze dei lettori attraverso un percorso incentrato sui suoi termini-chiave: Identità, Via, Corpo, Potere, Luce, Alchimia, Testo e Natura
