From the Inside Flap
"This is an excellent and truly path-breaking book. I commend the new approaches Baranovitch has taken . . . well written and always interesting . . . I recommend this book strongly." Colin Mackerras, The China Review
"This book is a must-read for anyone working in the field of Chinese cultural studies as well as for those specialized in Chinese political culture and Chinese contemporary history and society. The book provides an exciting and insightful account of the popular music scene in the last twenty years of the twentieth century, yet it does much more." Barbara Mittler, Modern Chinese Lit & Culture
