Editorial Reviews


Dream Trippers is compelling, brilliantly and simply written, and will have an important impact not only for those who seek to understand Daoism, but more widely for those who think about how contemporary cultures concretely compete to ‘produce religion’ as an object of interest and study.”
James Miller, Queen’s University

“A fascinating, insightful, and at times quite amusing work. What makes Dream Trippers especially interesting and valuable is its acute attention to the contradictions and ambiguities of the cross-cultural history, definition, relevance, practice, and meaning of Daoism as lived today in a hyper-materialistic China and in a hyper-individualistic United States.”
Norman Girardot, Lehigh University
