Booknews
A study that "probes the origins, vicissitudes, and potential of alternative projects in an anti-imperialist Leninist regime facing a profound crisis of legitimation." Friedman (political science, U. of Wisconsin, Madison) examines the project of building a democratic national identity in China, a project which, he believes, is succeeding "despite a monopoly of the media and all national cultural institutions by militant antidemocrats."
