Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Marxism and Religion presents the table of contents, and notes on contributors. The book focuses on Religious Studies Theory and Marxist Approaches to Religion and Issues in Chinese Contemporary Religion, two volumes in the series "Highlights of Contemporary Chinese Religion Research", published by Minzu Press. It presents a survey of the state of the field as it is practiced in China. Together, the book provides insight into how these two perspectives relate to each other, the changing landscape of ideas about religion and Marxism themselves, and the role that this very particular sphere of high-level scholarship might play in the formation and promotion of government policy. The chapter focuses primarily on the intellectual transformation of the field during the second half of the nineteenth century, showing how the evolution of the discipline kept pace with the major milestones of Western thought.
