Book Title: China's Magical Creatures
Subtitle: (and where to find them)
Book Description: A student-authored textbook, exploring beliefs, ideas, and religions of traditional China throughout history.
Based on the course with the same name: A cultural history of the strange in pre-modern China. How did the Chinese people explain the existence of ghosts, demons, immortals, fox spirits, (maybe even unicorns) and many other strange creatures? What do the encounters between humans and these creatures tell us about the pre-modern Chinese worldview? And how much of that tradition is still alive in China now?
