Encyclopedia of Contemporary Chinese Culture


In the last quarter-century, the resources of China's pre-socialist past have been rediscovered and combined with current influences to reinvent Chinese culture. This is the first source to digest China's vast cultural output and make it accessible to the English-speaking world. More than 1,000 entries, written by an international team of specialists, explore a diverse range of subjects- from prisons to rock groups and underground Christian churches to TV talk shows- while also offering biographical essays and information on more traditional cultural topics. The book's focus is on mainland China since 1980, but it also includes coverage of Hong Kong and Taiwan. Entries are indexed under eighteen categories for easy thematic browsing and include up-to-date references for further reading.
