    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The elaborate consumption of resources to bury the dead has a long tradition in Chinese burial culture. Yet criticism of expensive burial practices has an equally long tradition. This book illuminates continuity and change in burial practices as well as the criticism thereof, analyzing them against the backdrop of Chinese religious politics and theory formation in religious studies.
