Editorial Reviews

Review

"Professor Zhang's [book] is a major contribution to our understanding of Chinese culture. The Book of Burial is one the oldest and most widely cited manuals for geomancy, central to any understanding of the practice of geomancy during the last several centuries and its connections to both underlying cosmological ideas and the school of thought variously termed Neo-Confucianism or the Learning of the Way (Daoxue)....Professor Zhang's decision to include illustrations from three geomancy books adds enormously to this volume." - (from the Commendatory Preface) Patricia Ebrey, University of Washington"
