Spanning the centuries and crossing the globe, this engaging introduction covers everything Daoist, from the religion of the ancients to 21st-century T’ai Chi and meditation. Complete with a timeline of Daoist history and a full glossary, Daoism will prove invaluable not only to students, but also to general listeners who wish to learn more about the origins and nature of a profound tradition, and about its role and relevance in our fast-moving 21st-century existence.
Jame Miller's introduction to Daoism is the perfect tool for anyone who is interested in learning about the history and practice of this far-reaching religious practice. Miller is insistent on the innovative and ever-changing nature of Daoism. The audio answers the question, "what does Daoism mean in the 21st Century?" Brockett's voice has a staccato quality that helps her emphasize the most salient characteristics of the subject matter. Perhaps as a result, the narration is engaging and the information is easy to absorb.
“In this short volume, the author gives his readers not the last word on Daoism but invaluable handles to develop your own understanding of this rich and complex tradition.” (China Review International)
