Encyclopedia of Contemporary Chinese Culture
Edward L. Davis
Taylor & Francis, Dec 1, 2004 - History - 824 pages
This is the first reference book to digest this vast cultural output and make it accessible to the English-speaking world. It contains nearly 1,200 entries written by an international team of specialists, to enable readers to explore a range of diverse and fascinating cultural subjects from prisons to rock groups, underground Christian churches to TV talk shows and radio hotlines. Experimental artists with names such as 'Big-Tailed Elephants' and 'The North-Pole Group' nestle between the covers alongside entries on lotteries, gay cinema, political jokes, sex shops, theme parks, 'New Authoritarians' and 'Little Emperors'.
While the focus of the Encyclopedia of Contemporary Chinese Culture is on mainland China since 1980, it also includes longer, specially commissioned entries on various aspects of contemporary culture in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Including full and up-to-date references for further reading, this is an indispensable reference tool for all teachers and students of contemporary Chinese culture. It will also be warmly embraced as an invaluable source of cultural context by tourists, journalists, business people and others who visit China.

Encyclopedia of contemporary Chinese cultureUser Review - Book Verdict
Davis (history, Univ. of Hawaii) and his team of more than 200 contributors (primarily from academia, with a judicious balance of both Chinese and Western experts) have undertaken a bold project to capture the rapidly changing culture of China. There are over 1200 entries on individuals, art forms, political movements, and popular entertainment, each with citations of recent publications of more comprehensive sources for those seeking additional information. The emphasis is solidly on mainland China, but there is limited coverage of Singapore, Taiwan, and elsewhere in the Chinese world. Written in a generally crisp, objective, and balanced manner, the wide-ranging entries cover everything from Falun Gong, theme parks, and sexuality and behavior to university entrance examinations and cosmetic surgery. The fields of literature, film, and music are particularly well covered. Bottom Line There is no denying the increasing importance of the Chinese presence in the world, and this attractive reference book, in spite of its rather high price, deserves a place in the libraries of academic institutions teaching contemporary Chinese subjects. It will serve as a welcome introduction to all facets of Chinese studies. Highly recommended.-Harold M. Otness, formerly of Southern Oregon Univ. Lib., Ashland
