Reviews

"John Rapp is a world class scholar who uniquely is able to synthesize in a vivid and illuminating way insights from Chinese Daoism which address both the general literature on anarchism and the political realities of China, ancient and contemporary. This is magnificent and insightful scholarship." - Edward Friedman, Professor of Political Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison
