Full description for Whither China?
In the early 1990s the shadow of Tiananmen Square darkened the social, cultural, and intellectual excitement that China had experienced in the 1980s. But with the end of the Cold War and the beginning of economic reform after 1992, cultural production was rejuvenated and, as the century came to a close, the Chinese intellectual field began to regain its assertiveness and articulation. Whither China? explores these developments. Contributors. Rey Chow, Zhiyuan Cui, Michael Dutton, Gan Yang, Harry Harootunian, Peter Hitchcock, Rebecca Karl, Louisa Schein, Wang Hui, Shaoguang Wang
