New in IGCS - Online Bibliographies:

Towards a bibliography of works and passages on local religious life in
mainland China in the twentieth century (Republican China [before 1949] and
the PRC)

Ed./Corp.:  Barend J. ter Haar, Institute for Chinese Studies, Heidelberg,
Language: English.

Self description: "[... A bibliography of substantial literature on the
topic that] also strives to include those works with shorter yet
substantial discussions, which are otherwise not included in the customary
bibliographies on religious culture. Another feature is shorter or longer
annotations on the source value of the various works in question. This
bibliography does not replace, but rather supplements other works, such as
the three all-important bibliographies by Thompson and Seaman."

Description: Does not include material on Taiwan.
