This book comprehensively covers all main topics and periods of Daoism. It does not stop after the Tang as earlier works tend to do, but goes all the way into the present and also to some extent discusses Daoism in non-Chinese cultures. It is clearly and lucidly written and addresses a broad audience--not necessarily of sinological background. It may well be used in the classroom and by interested nonspecialists. --Stephan-Peter Bumbacher
