Thompson, Laurence G. Chinese Religion in Western Languages: A Comprehensive and Classified Bibliography of Publications in English, French, and German through 1980. Tuscon: University of Arizona Press, 1987.

An extremely complete and useful bibliography of Western literature on all aspects of Chinese religion. Basically divided into sections on Chinese Buddhism and all other Chinese religions—though Christianity and Islam are not included in the latter. Within each section, titles are arranged topically, with subject headings ranging from Art and Symbolism, to Ethics and Practice, State and Religion, Taoist Sects, Divination, Rites and Ceremonies, Magic and Sorcery, and Religion under Communism. The Buddhist section includes extensive sections on Art and Iconography, Caves and Mountains, Schools, Ch’an and Popular Buddhism. The range, accordingly, is from textual to aesthetic to anthropological approaches to Chinese religion. Also includes author index.
