Fengshui in China

Geomantic Divination between State Orthodoxy and Popular Religion

For well over a century Chinese fengshui, or geomancy, has fascinated western laymen and scholars. The focus of this academic study is on fengshui's significance in China and the author's argument that fengshui serves as an alternative tradition of cosmological knowledge which is used to explain a range of everyday occurrences in rural areas such as disease, mental disorders, accidents and common mischief.
