This volume, which contains 300,000 Chinese characters, includes exceptional articles about the contemporary Chinese rural construction movement, collections of local cultural material from different regions of China, interviews with model workers of the People’s Republic, studies of popular music culture, and the frontiers of critical cultural theory. These are accompanied by a special report entitled “The two-way break breakthrough in Cultural Studies,” which introduces the seminar on “Cultural Studies Publishing and Propagation,” in addition to an afterword. From these articles, we can understand the latest developments in the emerging interdisciplinary field of cultural studies, and the latest trends in the changes in contemporary Chinese thought and culture. We believe that the discussions of social and cultural points of interest in this book will lead readers to read and reflect even further.
