Abstract

2. See "Becoming American," pp. 72­85. Today in China, an increasingly more common greeting reflecting societal change is "Have you divorced?" See http://www.time.com/time/asia/ covers/0020923/story4.html, accessed January 23, 2005. 3. Chennault's planes were to "escort the incoming C-46's from the farthest point their fuel would allow and fight off the Japanese Zeros that attacked out of the sun like swarms of monstrous mosquitoes" (p. 68). Stephen Eskildsen. The Teachings and Practices of the Early Quanzhen Taoist Masters. SUNY Studies in Chinese Philosophy and Culture. Albany: State University of New York Press, 2004. vii, 274 pages. Hardcover 50.00, isbn 0­794­6045­2. Until the late twentieth century, most Westerners--including historians and other scholars of Chinese studies--still believed the nineteenth-century falsehood that after the sainted Laozi and Zhuangzi, Taoism no longer really existed, at least in any reputable form.
