What will China look like in 2000? Tectonic forces are at work and its seeming stability has been largely lost after Tiananmen Square. Changing political, social, economic, intellectual and cultural conditions are transforming China and its neighbours with a majority Chinese population. The authors in this book show what has been going on and what has been saved but is evolving. As communism did not erase the past, so new experiences build on the past and tease out newness with great resemblances. Modernity takes many forms, memory repressed for a time may reassert itelf; myth, the invention of individuals and collectivities, may be more powerful than prosaic fact. Cultural factors as agents of change appear more important than ever. This book demonstrates that today Confucian societies have salient features on a restless landscape. The authors confine themselves to enduring questions about today's Sinic societies so that educated readers and scholars of modern China will better understand the more populous half of the world. Contributing authors include: William P. Alford, David E. Apter, Myron L. Cohen, Edward Friedman, Tongqi Lin, Perry Link, Andrew J. Nathan, Benjamin I. Schwartz, Tianjian Shi, Helen F. Siu, Wang Gungwu, and Ying-shih Yu,
