About This Book

This study and analysis of cultural trends and policies in post-Mao China draws on the burgeoning literature and film of the 1980s and 90s. The focus is on the confusion of gender identities faced by male intellectuals in this period of search for modernity. Reading through a feminist psychoanalytic lens, Zhong argues that understanding the nature of male subjectivities as portrayed in literature and film is crucial to understanding China's ongoing quest for modernity. Referenced, with bibliography and index.
