Lakos, W, Chinese Ancestor Worship: A Practice and Ritual Orientated Approach to Understanding Chinese Culture, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, pp. 145. ISBN 1-4438-2495-X (2010) [Authored Research Book]

Abstract

The book takes a new approach to how we in the West understand China and Chinese culture. It challenges the master narrative of Confucianism and shows that ancestor worship has underpinned Chinese culture in many influential and vital ways and provides a nuanced and more efficacious paradigm through which Chinese culture may be viewed.
