Annotation:The Papers demonstrate how religion is embedded in Chinese culture therefore making specific ideas on the topic of religion, population, and the environment difficult to pinpoint. Adding to this difficulty is contemporary state policy directed against religious aspects of culture. Drawing on Chinese philosophical and literary traditions, the authors discuss how Chinese religion began within a context of underpopulation and proceeded toward its modern predicament of overpopulation.They conclude by examining the religious implications of familicide.
