Taijiquan and the Search for the Little Old Chinese Man by Adam Frank
Book DescriptionThis book is an ethnographic study of the martial art of taijiquan (or 'tai chi') as it is practiced in China and the United States. Drawing on recent literature on ethnicity, critical race theory, the phenomenology of race, and globalization, the author discusses identity in terms of sensual experience and the transmission/receipt of knowledge.

Drawing from the author's experience as a practicing astrophysicist and from the writings of the scholars of religion, philosophy, and mythology, this title locates the connective tissue linking science and religion - their commonality as sacred pursuits - and finds their shared aspiration in pursuit of 'the True and the Real'.
