"This ambitious work provides a sweeping analysis of Chinese popular culture from 1977 to the turn of the millennium. Lu discusses everything from intellectual debates on the concepts of modernity and postmodernity to cinematic, artistic, and literary representations of China's social changes in the era of economic reform." - The China Review
