Synopsis

This comparative survey of the secularization policies of the Soviet Union and China looks at the suppression, survival, and revival of religion in both countries. "Religion and the State in Russia and China" explores the religious nature of man through the cases of forced secularization in the Soviet Union and China. The book provides an in-depth account of the failure and successes of both countries' secularization policies. Starting with the theological innovations that led to atheistic theorizing, it then looks at the policies that were implemented to speed up the suppression of religious beliefs and what ultimately led to today's resurgence of religion. Russia and China are ideal cases for a comparative study as both experimented with the idea of eradication of religion under Marxist-Leninist parties and regimes. However, they differ in their relationship with their states, religious denominations, and societies. The research for this project includes extensive fieldwork in both Russia and China, including participant-observation at rallies and demonstrations as well as interviews with scholars, religious believers/non-believers, and religious leading figures.

"Religion and the State in Russia and China" offers original research for an in-depth survey that will interest anyone studying politics and religion, policies, as well as theories of desecularization.
