If radio and film were the emblematic media of the Maoist era, television has rapidly established itself as the medium of the "marketized" China and in the diaspora. In less than two decades, television has become the dominant medium across the Chinese cultural world. TV China is the first anthology in English on this phenomenon. Covering the People's Republic, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Chinese diaspora, these 12 original essays introduce and analyze the Chinese television industry, its programming, the policies shaping it, and its audiences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Zhu and Berry have succeeded in fulfilling their objective of offering 'balanced coverage' of the topic of Chinese television. Culturally and geographically, this anthology covers mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Chinese diaspora. Four key research areas demarcate its distinct thematic sections: institutions, programming, reception, and 'going global'.32.2 2012 * HIST JRNL FILM RADIO & TV *
. . . The book's content certainly helps to fill in cracks and crannies of Chinese television studies, for which readers will be thankful . . . July 2009 * Choice *
[This] volume has succeeded in filling a number of gaps, most notably in bringing together within one volume various approaches to the study of Chinese television as a cultural phenomenon that is at once national, transnational, and diasporic. It is a welcome addition to the field, and students and researchers of Chinese media, culture and society, as well as television studies academics in general, should find the book a very useful reference.199 Sept. 2009 -- Wanning Sun * China Quarterly *
