Joseph Bosco, in East Asia, 2004) 'Offers significant insights into the working of diverse coexisting traditions... [and will] undoubtedly remain an important work in the studies of contemporary China's transformation as well as postcolonial cultural development.' (Yinong Xu, in China Review International, 2004)" --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
Bruun walks through villages and interviews people and feng shui practitioners about the state of the practise today compared to 150 years ago.
This book is bound to be a disappointment for the McFengshui crowd because the people "seeing" feng shui (that is, in Chinese terms, those who practise on behalf of clients) all use compasses. The so-called schools advocated by McFengshui types don't exist (and never existed) in China. But it's also difficult for those who know the traditional material to see what has happened to the state of the art in its birthplace; it's hard to not be moved by what was lost during the turbulent days of the Cultural Revolution, and how many feng shui masters paid dearly for their knowledge.
