Rezensionen
"Decoding Dao does an amazing job of making classical Daoist philosophy accessible to undergraduates today. Many years of experience teaching this subject and listening carefully to students' questions have resulted in a book which finally explains Daoism in a way that works for them and not just for experts. This is a great achievement pedagogically and an enormous help for any class teaching about Daoism and Chinese philosophy."
--James Miller, Professor of Chinese Studies, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada

This wonderful introduction provides historical context, keen analysis, and lively, accessible examples to help readers appreciate both surface meanings and the deeper significance of two essential--and beloved--texts of Chinese religion. Rainey's great strength is to take very complex material and present it in an accurate, but friendly and accessible way. This is an excellent companion book and textbook for any student--or general reader--anyone working his or her way through the Laozi or Zhuangzi.
--Jennifer Oldstone-Moore, Wittenberg University
