Summary
"Illustrated with fascinating cartoons and photographs and rich with facts, anecdotes, and events. In the Red provides a narrative history of Chinese culture during the past twenty years, exposing the complex relationship between "official" culture (produced, supported, or sanctioned by the government) and "nonofficial" or countercultures (especially among urban youths and dissidents). Investigating what goes on behind the rhetoric of the Chinese government and the dissident community, author Geremie R. Barme questions mainstream Western perceptions of cultural developments, artistic freedom, and popular lifestyles in modern China." "This bold account of the cultural predicament of the world's most populous nation provides insights available nowhere else."--BOOK JACKET
