Building Temples in China

Much has been written on how temples are constructed or reconstructed for reviving local religious and communal life or for recycling tradition after the market reforms in China. The dynamics between the state and society that lie behind the revival of temples and religious practices initiated by the locals have been well-analysed. However, there is a gap in the literature when it comes to understanding religious revivals that were instead led by local governments. This book examines the revival of worship of the Chinese Deity Huang Daxian and the building of many new temples to the god in mainland China over the last 20 years. It analyses the role of local governments in initiating temple construction projects in China, and how development-oriented temple-building activities in Mainland China reveal the forces of transnational ties, capital, markets and identities, as temples were built with the hope of developing tourism, boosting the local economy, and enhancing Chinese identities for Hong Kong worshippers and Taiwanese in response to the reunification of Hong Kong to China. Including chapters on local religious memory awakening, pilgrimage as a form of tourism, women temple managers, entrepreneurialism and the religious economy, and based on extensive fieldwork, Chan and Lang have produced a truly interdisciplinary follow up to The Rise of a Refugee God which will appeal to students and scholars of Chinese religion, Chinese culture, Asian anthropology, cultural heritage and Daoism alike.

"The Black Cat" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. It was first published in the August 19, 1843, edition of The Saturday Evening Post. It is a study of the psychology of guilt, often paired in analysis with Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart". In both, a murderer carefully conceals his crime and believes himself unassailable, but eventually breaks down and reveals himself, impelled by a nagging reminder of his guilt."El gato negro" (t�tulo original en ingl�s: The Black Cat) es un cuento de horror del escritor estadounidense Edgar Allan Poe, publicado en el peri�dico Saturday Evening Post de Filadelfia en su n�mero del 19 de agosto de 1843. La cr�tica lo considera uno de los m�s espeluznantes de la historia de la literatura.

" I am not more certain that I breathe than that the assurance of the wrong or error of any action is often the one unconquerable force which impels us, and alone impels us, to its prosecution. " Edgar Allan Poe's obsession with the perverse is seen at its most appalling in these tales, in which killers are betrayed by wail of a cat or the beat of a heart - or perhaps by their own perverseness. And Poe's love of extremis takes us to premature burials, into the maelström, and to the bedside of a man mesmerized in the final moments of life - who lives on to declare " I am dead ". This selection includes six of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tales of horror together with his three masterly stories of the unknown at sea : " MS. Found in a Bottle ", " A Descent into the Maelström ", and his only novel, " The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket ".
