The End of the Revolution: China and the Limits of Modernity by Wang Hui
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This title presents a compelling examination of the future of Chinese modernity by the leading member of China's 'New Left'. Challenging both the bureaucratic one-party regime and the Western neoliberal paradigm, China's leading critic shatters the myth of progress and reflects upon the inheritance of a revolutionary past. In this original and wide-ranging study, Wang Hui examines the roots of China's social and political problems, and traces the reforms and struggles that have led to the current state of mass depoliticization. Arguing that China's revolutionary history and its current liberalization are part of the same discourse of modernity, Wang Hui calls for alternatives to both its capitalist trajectory and its authoritarian past. From the May Fourth Movement to Tiananmen Square, "The End of the Revolution" offers a broad discussion of Chinese intellectual history and society, in the hope of forging a new path for China's future.
