Gods, Ghosts, & Ancestors: Folk Religion in a Taiwanese Village

This book is a case study of Chinese religion. It is about religion as it is lived in one village, here called Bǎo’ān 保 安, at one point in time: the present. That pseudonym Bǎo’ān means “safe-guarding harmony”; religion in Bǎo’ān is directed to that end. The nature of the harmony, the dangers that threaten it, and particularly the means by which it is preserved will be our theme.
