About the Authors
  • China's convulsive Cultural Revolution was conceived in 1966 as a 'great revolution that would touch the people to their very souls'. How are we to assess its impact fifty years on? In this volume, leading social and political scientists, historians and anthropologists examine the long-lasting consequences of the political, social, economic and cultural upheaval unleashed by Mao Zedong. Contributions from authors working within and outside the People's Republic of China consider the impact of this tumultuous mass movement from perspectives as diverse as market-based economic reform, clothing and fashion, the grassroots movements of late 1960s across the globe and the so-called 'lost generation' of sent-down youth. We find that collective and personal memories of the Cultural Revolution and its enduring institutional and social legacies continue to exert a profound effect on China and the Chinese people today.

    • Leading social and political scientists, historians and anthropologists examine the consequences of the Cultural Revolution in China fifty years on
    • Considers the political, economic and cultural ramifications of the revolution
    • Academics examine the Cultural Revolution from diverse perspectives, from clothing and fashion to the 'lost generation' of educated youth
