Reviews

"This is a timely, thoughtful, and illuminating analytical overview of the intriguingly complex and problematic experience of Chinese Catholicism in the supercharged decades following China's momentous opening to the world in 1978, made available to us, propitiously, by an exceptionally able, articulate, and authentic Hong Kong Chinese Catholic scholar." - Stephen Uhalley, professor emeritus at the University of Hawaii, USA. "This book is well written with a comprehensive treatment yet a simple and clear style. It is suitable for people who are interested in diplomatic relations, religion, politics, and society in contemporary China, as well as a history of Christianity in the Global South." - Zhifeng Zhong, Renmin University of China.
