    DescriptionIn 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

    Review quote
    "The introduction is a real "tour de force," It shows excellent understanding both of the intellectual climate of the West, which still tends to be the source of 'global ideas' and of China. . . . [T]his book . . . has been beautifully edited and written. . . . The production is . . . excellent . . . . [T]his is an important book. The introduction is especially important . . . [I]t should be very useful for specialists and students and I recommend it strongly." --Colin Mackerras, "The China Review"
