Dai Jinhua is one of contemporary China's most influential cultural critics. In these pages she examines the Orientalism that made Zhang Yimou the darling of international film festivals, and speculates on the value of Mao Zedong as an icon of post-revolutionary consumerism, for example.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In these luminously powerful essays on Chinese cinema, women's literature, and contemporary popular culture, Dai Jinhua achieves a new historiography. She shows us how to rethink the great themes of nationalism, colonialism, consumerist capaitalism, and modernity itself, Moving, inspiring, and absorbinb from beginning to end."--Meaghan Morris, Lingnan University, Hong Kong

"The most lucid, complex and brilliant analysis of the Fifth Generation Film (indeed ofg the entire 'generations' phenomenon in the People's Republic of China) that I have ever seen. Dai Jinhua manages at the same time to connect with international currents in psychoanalytical feminist film criticism and to forward a grounded, 'new Marxist' Chinese school of thinking."--Ella Shohat, City University of New York
