The Cambridge companion to modern Chinese culture
Review: This Companion explains key aspects of modern Chinese culture without assuming prior knowledge of China or the Chinese language. Invaluable for students of Chinese studies, this book includes a glossary of key terms, a chronology and a guide to further reading. For the interested reader or traveller, it reveals a dynamic, diverse and fascinating culture, many aspects of which are now elucidated in English for the first time.
