But now, following a century of violent antireligious campaigns, China is awash with new temples, churches, and mosques – as well as cults, sects, and politicians trying to harness religion for their own ends. Driving this explosion of faith is uncertainty – over what it means to be Chinese, and how to live an ethical life in a country that discarded traditional morality and is still searching for new guideposts. The Souls of China is the result of some fifteen years of studying and travelling around China. The message of Ian Johnson’s extraordinary book is that China is now experiencing a ‘Great Awakening’ on a vast scale. Everywhere long-suppressed religions are rebuilding, often in new forms, and reshaping the values and behaviours of entire communities. Ian Johnson is as happy explaining the wonders of the lunar calendar as talking to the yinyang man who ensures proper burials. He visits meditation masters and the charismatic head of a Chengdu church. The result is a rich and funny work that challenges conventional wisdom about China. Xi Jinping, China’s current leader, has put a return to morality and Chinese tradition at the heart of his ideas for his country – but, Johnson asks, at what point will the rapid spread of belief form an unmanageable challenge to the Party’s monopoly on power?|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/846037f9/the-souls-of-china-ian-johnson-9780241305270.jpg|9780241305270|The Souls of China : Hardback : Allen Lane : 9780241305270 : 27 Apr 2017 : ‘Masterfully opens up a little explored realm: how the quest for religion and spirituality drives hundreds of millions of Chinese’ Pankaj Mishra ‘A fascinating odyssey … a n …|new|1|1|1|25|0|GBP|Ian Johnson|Penguin Books Ltd|27 Apr 2017|Asian history 9780241306536|DK Eyewitness Family Guide London|10.04|https://wordery.com/dk-eyewitness-family-guide-london-dk-eyewitness-9780241306536|Perfect for planning and enjoying a stress-free family holiday, this easy-to-use guide book is packed with insider tips and information on the best family-friendly activities and attractions.

One of the central facts of human existence is that every society shares a set of beliefs and assumptions – a faith, an ideology, a religion – that goes far beyond the life of the individual. These beliefs are an essential part of a shared identity. They have a unique power to define – and to divide – us, and are a driving force in the politics of much of the world today. Throughout history they have most often been, in the widest sense, religious. Yet this book is not a history of religion, nor an argument in favour of faith. It is about the stories which give shape to our lives, and the different ways in which societies imagine their place in the world. Looking across history and around the globe, it interrogates objects, places and human activities to try to understand what shared beliefs can mean in the public life of a community or a nation, how they shape the relationship between the individual and the state, and how they help give us our sense of who we are. For in deciding how we live with our gods, we also decide how to live with each other. ‘The new blockbuster by the museums maestro Neil MacGregor … The man who chronicles world history through objects is back … examining a new set of objects to explore the theme of faith in society’ Sunday Times|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/b16992bb/living-with-the-gods-dr-neil-macgregor-9780241308295.jpg|9780241308295|Living with the Gods : Hardback : Allen Lane : 9780241308295 : 17 Sep 2018 : A panoramic exploration of peoples, objects and beliefs over 40,000 years from the celebrated author of A History of the World in 100 Objects and Germany, following the new B …|new|1|1|6|30|0|GBP|Dr Neil MacGregor|Penguin Books Ltd|17 Sep 2018|History of religion 9780241306499|Pocket Rough Guide Marrakesh (Travel Guide)|6.87|https://wordery.com/pocket-rough-guide-marrakesh-travel-guide-rough-guides-9780241306499|Discover this vibrant city with the most incisive and entertaining travel guide on the market.

That is why he is so often called ‘Charles the Great’: by the French ‘Charlemagne’, and by the Germans ‘Karl der Grosse’. His strength of character was felt to be remarkable from early in his long reign. Warfare and accident, vermin and weather have destroyed much of the evidence for his rule in the twelve centuries since his death, but a remarkable amount still survives. Janet L. Nelson’s wonderful new book brings together everything we know about Charlemagne and sifts through the evidence to come as close as we can to understanding the man and his motives. Nelson has an extraordinary knowledge of the sources and much of the book is a sort of detective story, prying into and interpreting fascinating material and often obdurate scraps, from prayerbooks to skeletons, gossip to artwork. Above all, Charles’ legacy lies in his deeds and their continuing resonance, as he shaped duchies and counties, rebuilt and founded towns and monasteries, and consciously set himself up not just as King of the Franks, but as the new ‘Emperor governing the Roman Empire’. His successors – in some ways to the present day – have struggled to interpret, misinterpret, copy or subvert Charlemagne’s legacy. Nelson gets us as close as we can ever hope to come to the real figure, as understood in his own time.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/d72ce5db/king-and-emperor-janet-l-nelson-9780241305256.jpg|9780241305256|King and Emperor : Paperback : Penguin Books Ltd : 9780241305256 : 01 Oct 2020 : A DAILY TELEGRAPH AND BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019 ‘A remarkable book: the dramatic story of a truly extraordinary man … brilliant’ Helen Castor, author …|new|1|1|17|16.99|0|GBP|Janet L.
