Draws together a wide range of interdisciplinary material concerning Chinese historical memory and cultural choice. Contributions focus on key moments in China's domestic cultural and political history as well as its foreign policy, and consider how the Chinese state has at times coincided and at other times failed to coincide with the self-image of the people.
