Summary: "Not only does Nedilsky offer a refreshing look at the role of religion in public life in Hong Kong, she also presents people's voices and choices in the context of a society undergoing rapid changes." --Tai-Lok Lui, Professor of Sociology, the University of Hong Kong.

Riassunto: Lida V Nedilsky captures the public ramifications of a personal, Christian faith at the time of Hong Kongs pivotal political turmoil. From 1997 to 2008, in the much-anticipated reintegration of Hong Kong into Chinese sovereignty, she conducted detailed interviews of more than fifty Hong Kong people and then followed their daily lives, documenting their involvement at the intersection of church and state. Citizens of Hong Kong enjoy abundant membership options, both social and religious, under Hong Kongs free market culture. Whether identifying as Catholic or Protestant, or growing up in religious or secular households, Nedilskys interviewees share an important characteristic: a story of choosing faith. Across the spheres of family and church, as well as civic organisations and workplaces, Nedilsky shows how individuals break and forge bonds, enter and exit commitments, and transform the public ends of choice itself. From this intimate, first-hand vantage point, this book reveals that peoples independent movements not only invigorate and shape religious community but also enliven a wider public life.
Linda V. Nedilsky is Professor of Sociology at North Park University. Ethnography enables her engagement with the world, whether as a researcher in Hong Kong or as a citizen of Chicago.
