Overview

This richly illustrated book provides an innovative reinterpretation of the Cultural Revolution through the medium of the poster_a major component of popular print culture in China. Using an array of full color and black-and-white reproductions of posters, an eminent group of scholars explores the discursive power of visual artforms in Chinese public life. They provide an interdisciplinary analysis of political art produced for a Chinese audience and acknowledge the importance of subjectivity in elucidating important cultural facets of the period. Readers interested in Chinese cultural or political history, popular culture, and art history will find this a unique and perceptive work.

Editorial Reviews

China Information
The book's breadth of coverage is excellent, and most chapters have copious footnotes providing access to the primary literature.
China Quarterly
There is a wealth of historical detail on the production and subject matter of CCP poster art not found elsewhere, and each essay offers a careful argument grounded in a rich set of illustrations. Most importantly, attention to the more than fifty reproductions will evoke in most readers a greater range of emotional and intellectual reactions than conventional text-only material. As a result, Picturing Power not only imparts new information but also elicits—just as the editors hoped—previously unexplored associations that complicate, and therefore deepen, our understanding of the Mao years.
The China Journal
Each chapter raises interesting points and presents avenues for further research.
