Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A tale of China's "new mandarins," describing developments largely unknown to Western readers: the careful planning of television soap operas to placate popular unrest after Tiananmen Square, the growth of pornography, a new generation of entrepreneurs importing the consumer techniques of Hong Kong and the West, and the politics behind both the censorship and the commercial success of Chinese filmmakers. The author, a journalist who divides her time between China and the United States, charts the progress of a nation's transformation. Portions appeared in different form in magazines including The Voice Literary Supplement, The Nation, and The Antioch Review. No index.
