___Hong Kong surely has few rivals worldwide for being a major city in an outstanding natural setting, surrounded by hills, islands, beaches, waterfalls, wildlife and South China village traditions. Enchanting Hong Kong reveals this multi-faceted destination for a broad spectrum of visitors ranging from those making a short business trip but with some spare time to those who have a bit longer to explore outside the city itself. It provides full information on all the shopping possibilities from the malls to the daytime and night-time markets of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Central, Wanchai and Stanley, as well as the many delicious dining possibilities - seafood, especially, is a must in Hong Kong. It also takes the visitors a bit further afield to explore the outstanding and extensive network of country trails, the islands, the New Territories and some less well-known beaches. A holiday in Hong Kong can combine a stay in a comfortable hotel with hiking or birding during the day, some shopping, then dinner and a night on the town. It is a many-splendoured place just waiting to be explored

In Re-enchanting Modernity Mayfair Yang examines the resurgence of religious and ritual life after decades of enforced secularization in the coastal area of Wenzhou, China. Drawing on twenty-five years of ethnographic fieldwork, Yang shows how the local practices of popular religion, Daoism, and Buddhism are based in community-oriented grassroots organizations that create spaces for relative local autonomy and self-governance. Central to Wenzhou's religious civil society is what Yang calls a "ritual economy," in which an ethos of generosity is expressed through donations to temples, clerics, ritual events, and charities in exchange for spiritual gain. With these investments in transcendent realms, Yang adopts Georges Bataille's notion of "ritual expenditures" to challenge the idea that rural Wenzhou's economic development can be described in terms of Max Weber's notion of a "Protestant Ethic". Instead, Yang suggests that Wenzhou's ritual economy forges an alternate path to capitalist modernity.

The Second Edition of Enchanting a Disenchanted World: Revolutionizing the Means of Consumption is a unique analysis of the world of consumption, examining how we are different consumers now than we were in the past, both in the U.S. and around the world. In the process of understanding this social development, a wide range of theoretical perspectives including Marxian, Weberian, critical theory, and postmodern theory are applied. The book also looks at concepts such as hyperconsumption, implosion, time and space, and simulation . Enchanting a Disenchanted World connects the everyday world in a sociological and theoretical way, making it an ideal text for a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses including introductory sociology, sociology of consumption , social change, popular culture, sociology of leisure, social theory, and economic sociology. The book will also be of value to anyone interested in exploring a sociological analysis of the world's changing and expanding patterns and places of consumption.
