Chinese Lifestyle Series-Chinese Rites and Rituals BHT269


This book is an overall introduction of Chinese ritual systems and the related social norms. The first part begins with an elaboration of the central Chinese concept Li, which carries a wide range of connotations including not only rites and rituals but also what are generally concerned as good manners, appropriate behavior and acceptable ceremonies on various social occasions. The contents are divided into two parts, with the first part on traditional rites and rituals and the second on the modern practice. Actually all possible aspects appropriate to be considered under the general title of Li are touched on, form individual social conducts to state rules. With the understanding that Li is a matter of great importance in Chinese culture, we believe this book is of special value for learning about the Chinese society and its people's way of thinking and life..
