Neky's scholarship challenges conventional wisdom about the ritual process, especially in the sense that jiezhu rituals do not appear to fully conform to the tripartite structure of van Gennep's model of rites of passage." - Prof. Paul R. Katz Institute of Modern History "... invaluable to further exploration of why and how women ritualize, what forces control and shape those rites, and the ways in which ritual meaning is formed and appropriated." - Prof. Lesley A. Northrup Florida International University" pdf
