Since the early 1980s, China's rapid economic growth and social transformation have greatly altered the role of popular religion.

This book makes a new contribution to the research on the phenomenon by examining the role which popular religion has played in modern Chinese politics.

The popular religion of nuo is used as an example of how the new role has enabled the religion to be directly incorporated into the Chinese Community Party's (CCP) policies, to be viewed as supporting the legitimacy of the regime, and to function as a tool to enhance national cohesion and safeguard national unification.
