Item description for Southern Fujian: Reproduction of Traditions in Post-Mao China by Tan Chee-beng...

This book examines traditions in post-Mao southern Fujian, surveying various aspects of everyday culture including lineages, religion, and the status of women. Though the State remains officially opposed to "superstitious" traditions, these articles illustrate how post-liberalization economic and political transformations have done much to contribute to their revitalization. This volume also examines the politics of traditions and their relevance to local identities, stressing the dynamic nature of traditions as they are reproduced through different cultural agents.

Reviews - What do customers think about Southern Fujian: Reproduction of Traditions in Post-Mao China?

revival of many old customs  Sep 25, 2006
You can get an appreciation for the richness of the southern Fujian region from the book. It has essays from 7 Chinese scholars about different aspects of that regional culture. Some discuss the preceding centuries.

A striking example is how the region under the Ming Dynasty was restricted in trading with foreigners. Another topic is the prevalence (or revival) of religious expressions in the post-Mao era. Notably the resumption of ancestor worship. Accompanied by activities like offerings of soul houses to the ancestors. Often these events happen with the tacit tolerance of the government.
