About the Authors
  • The culture of the People's Republic of China offers a unique blend of the popular, the political and the avant-garde. In no other country in the world are cultural products subjected to such strict censorship and at the same time consumed by such large numbers of people. This volume presents essays by scholars at the cutting edge of Chinese cultural studies, dealing with subjects ranging from advertising to poetry, from rock music to revolutionary museums, providing an authoritative and multi-faceted analysis of some of the world's most complex cultural phenomena.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Dooling's second anthology, part of her ambitious translation project on Writing Women in Modern China, will soon become a primary source for scholars and students working in fields related to women and Chinese modernity. it is also a great read for general readers. Well translated with a thoroughly researched and critically informed introduction and biographical essays, the anthology serves as a model for future translation projects in Chinese studies.' The China Journal
