“A central figure among a group of writers and academics known collectively as the New Left.”—The New York Times Magazine
“One of China’s leading historians and most interesting and influential public intellectuals.”—Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Los Angeles Times
“Wang Hui brings a distinctive Chinese voice to the discussion of globalization and neoliberalism.”—Chinese Development Brief
“Our focus on the country’s future has led to a de facto collusion with the Chinese government in ignoring its past ... In The End of the Revolution, the leading Chinese critic Wang Hui offers an alternative: an undivided narrative of modern Chinese history which makes better sense.”—John Gittings, The Guardian
“Wang Hui [is] one of the strongest critics of contemporary inequality and the marketization of society and politics in China. [This] nuanced and highly theorized investigation into the relationship between revolutionary traditions and the rise of neoliberal capitalism ... has implications beyond the field of China studies.”—Alexander Day, Criticism
“The best book regarding Western misconceptions of contemporary China.”—Artforum
About the Author
Wang Hui is a professor in the Department of Chinese Language and Literature at Tsinghua University in Beijing, where he currently lives. He studied at Yangzhou University, Nanjing University and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. He has also been a visiting professor at NYU and other universities in the U.S. In 1989, he participated in the Tiananmen Square Protests and was subsequently sent to a poor inland province for compulsory “re-education” as punishment for his participation. He developed a leftist critique of government policy and came to be one of the leading proponents of the Chinese New Left in the 1990s, though Wang Hui did not choose this term. Wang was named as one of the top 100 public intellectuals in the world in 2008 by Foreign Policy.
