Editorial Reviews

Review

“Reading this book is a must for students and scholars interested in the evolution of Chinese intellectual life at the end of the twentieth century.”—The China Journal

The indispensable survey of China’s recent social, political and cultural thought. The coverage is breath-taking.”—Choice

“A basic document for understanding contemporary China.”—China Quarterly

“There is a Chinese intellectual realm just as astonishing as the Chinese economy. The authors engage in lively debate among themselves and are in complete command of Western thought and philosophy. They show that whatever the troubles of their nation, individual Chinese can take up the most sophisticated features of modern culture.”—Foreign Affairs

“The only work of its kind available in English. A welcome reminder of the growing diversity of Chinese intellectual thought.”—London Review of Books

“Wang’s collection stands out for its focus on issues of democracy and social justice.”—Arif Dirlik, New Left Review

Format: Paperback
This book promises an introduction to intellectual discourse in post-mao china, and on the whole, it does deliver. It covers a varied set of themes and views, concerning the societal, political and cultural evolution of China after Mao. The book is diversely structured, divided into four parts following the editor's opening essay ("Minds of the nineties"), an overview of major themes of public debate in post-mao china. In the first section we find interviews with leading chinese public intellectuals (like Wang Hui and Zhu Xueqin), while the second gives us critical essays on the effects of the economic reforms of the 90's. The third section features more diverse issues, like education, gender, ideology e.g. The fourth and final section is entitled "A dialogue on the Future of China", with reflections from three prominent figures in the June Fourth movement, one of them being the author.

It's uniqueness lies in it being a product of essential chinese origin, with authors almost exclusively from mainland China. I guess an inside view offers both good and bad sides, and do not necessarily agree with the view presented somewhere in the anthology, that (for example) nationality is an advantage of understanding one's society - critical distance and comparison can also offer understanding. But since the purpose of this book seems to be twofold, firstly to describe chinese society and secondly intellectual debate, it does, if nothing else, give some sense of genuineness. The authors in question are no doubt important figures on the intellectual scene - and their views on various themes are presented in a varied, tidy and clear fashion.
