Product Description

For well over a century Chinese fengshui, or geomancy, has fascinated Western laymen and scholars. The focus of this academic study is on fengshui's significance in China and the author's argument that fengshui serves as an alternative tradition of cosmological knowledge which is used to explain a range of everyday occurrences (especially in rural areas) such as disease, mental disorders, accidents and common mischief. This paperback edition of the 2003 hardback details the spread of fengshui to urban areas where it has been widely adopted in the construction industry.
