Reclaiming the Wilderness

Contemporary Dynamics of the Yiguandao

Sébastien Billioud

  • Explores the expansionary dynamics and central features of one of Asia's most influential and least known religious movements
  • Combines intensive micro-level fieldwork with macro-analysis of the relationships between Yiguandao and politics in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong
  • Highlights the role of Hong Kong as both a platform serving Yiguandao's ambition to reestablish itself in China and as a node of religious circulation between Taiwan, Macao, China and elsewhere
