Description

Editorial Reviews Review "A powerful historical, political, cultural, and sociological analysis of the Qigong movement and its relationship to the state... Essential." -Choice ( Choice ) A brilliant piece of scholarship... it is to be hoped that this excellent book reaches a wide readership. (David Ownby Pacific Affairs 1900-01-00) The most comprehensive volume published on the Qigong movement in contemporary China. (Gareth Fisher Journal of Chinese Religions 1900-01-00) [A] remarkable study... the best work in its field. ( Journal of Social History ) Qigong Fever provides original and profound insights into Chinese social and political history over the last 60 years. (Georges Favroud China Perspectives 2009-01-00) David Palmer's fascinating and solidly researched Qigong Fever represents the first serious English-language history of the qigong explosion that rocked China over the course of the 1980s and 1990s (Patricia M. Thornton History of Religions 1900-01-00) Qigong Fever is well written, engaging, and extensively researched. It is a landmark in the study of qigong and an indispensible resource for anyone attempting to understand Chinese society in the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution. (Scott Lowe International Journal for the Study of New Religions 1900-01-00) Review This is a pathbreaking study, elegantly written and meticulously researched. It constitutes the first thorough analysis of qigong and its many mutations between state and society in China and offers an original interpretation of the suppression of the Falungong movement in 1999. Qigong Fever is indispensable to the field of Chinese studies but also to the more general topics of religion and modernity. (Frank Dikötter, School of Oriental and African Studies, author of The Discourse of Race in Modern China ) See all Editorial Reviews
