The authors of the chapters – experts dealing with China in their daily academic or analytical work – formulate answers to the following questions: • How has China’s political system changed under Xi Jinping? • What characterizes Xi as a politician? • What are the reasons for the success of China’s economic transformation? • What’s next for the Belt and Road Initiative? • How is Xi Jinping’s China responding to challenges in terms of security policy, but also, i.e., climate protection and energy transition? • How is Chinese nationalism shaping up under Xi’s rule? • How is Xi Jinping’s cabinet responding to the domestic and international challenges? • What changes have occurred in Chinese culture since Xi took power?
Chén Tuán 陳摶 of the Western Marchmount
Author:
Traces of a Daoist Immortal is a Daoist-infused tour de force on the Daoist mountain hermit Chén Tuán 陳摶 (Xīyí 希夷 [Infinitesimal Subtlety]; d. 989) and his fellow “hidden immortals.”
Breaking various academic taboos, including hyper-historicism, social constructivism, and conformist mentalities, here Komjathy, in an aspirational gesture towards unbridled inquiry, offers annotated translations and scholarly introductions to ten major works associated with the Daoist immortal.
The book also contains a cutting-edge, mythopoetic introduction that addresses the life and legend of Chén Tuán, his connection to the Western Marchmount of Huàshān 華山 (Mount Hua; Huàyīn, Shǎnxī), Daoist views about sleeping, dreaming, waking, as well as Daoist time-being.
