Chinese religions in contemporary societies by James Miller( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 390 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
Daoism : a short introduction by James Miller( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 230 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

Religion and ecological sustainability in China by James Miller( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 84 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"--
Death in Gaza by James Miller( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In early 2003, James Miller and Saira Shah went to the Gaza Strip to make a documentary about what it is like to grow up in a conflict zone. They were entering a region that had been in turmoil for more than fifty years. The Gaza Strip, and its Palestinian Arab population, fell under Israel's control following the Six Day War of 1967. This film begins in Nablus, on the West Bank, and examines the lives of three Palestinian children, indoctrinated in the creed of Jihad and growing up in the bullet-riddled streets of Gaza. On May 2, 2003 in the midst of filming, James Miller became a casualty of that same conflict, shot dead by an Israeli soldier in the Gaza Strip
