Ian Johnson is a Pulitzer Prize winning writer, journalist, and reviewer of China’s society, religion, and history.

His writing appears regularly in leading publications such as the New York Times, The New Yorker, National Geographic, and the New York Review of Books. This year, he was awarded the Shorenstein Journalism Award by Stanford's Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center.

Ian's latest book, "The Souls of China: The Return of Religion after Mao," follows three religious groups in China - an underground Protestant church in Chengdu, pilgrims in Beijing, rural Daoist priests in Shanxi, and meditation groups in caves in the country's south - and their differing approaches to spirituality.

This event was recorded at Harvard's Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies by Director Michael Szonyi.
