Overview

During the two decades of growing globalization and its underlying imperial paradigm, Wang (Chinese and Comparative Literature, Rutgers University) has become uncomfortable with the notion of universal norms and a universal history. What, he asks, will become of the national, local, and even family and individual memory? Taking modern Chinese culture as a case study, he sketches a trajectory in which memory and history proceed in tension and unison. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
