Summary: Anthropologists David A. Palmer and Elijah Siegler explore the globalization of Daoism: the interactions between international spiritual tourists, traditional Chinese monks, and American scholar-practitioners at the sacred Daoist mountain of Huashan, China. Palmer and Siegler show how the spiritual and religious histories of China and the West intersect, collide, and interpenetrate, revealing the paradoxes and dilemmas of the search for spiritual authenticity in a globalized world.--Provided by publisher.
