The Bloomsbury Handbook of Japanese Religions (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Providing an overview of current cutting-edge research in the field of Japanese religions, this Handbook is the most up-to-date guide to contemporary scholarship in the field. As well as charting innovative research taking-place, the volume also points to new directions for future research, and covers both the modern and pre-modern periods.

Edited by Fabio Rambelli, Erica Baffelli and Andrea Castiglioni, The Bloomsbury Handbook of Japanese Religions has a prestigious editorial board including Ian Reader, Mark Mullins, Ellen Van Goethem, and Cynthea Bogel. The essays are drawn from leading international scholars from the USA, UK and Europe, Japan and New Zealand. Topics and themes include gender, politics, the arts, economy, media, globalization and colonialism.

The Bloomsbury Handbook of Japanese Religions is an essential reference point for upper-level students and scholars in Japanese religions as well as Japanese studies more broadly.
