China, Geremie R. Barme notes, has become one of the greatest writing and publishing nations on the planet, and both cultural activists and the state are embroiled in debates about the production and distribution of its cultural products. But what happens when global culture and Chinese capitalist-socialism meet in the marketplace? This text investigates what goes on behind the rhetoric of the official Chinese government and the dissident community and provides a perspective on mainstream Western perceptions of cultural developments, artistic freedom and popular lifestyles in China at the end of the 20th century.
