Review:

This exceptional book provides a fresh history of modern China, showing how it was shaped by visual experiences. Leading scholars trace the strong connection between image-making and state power from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries. The essays examine not only artifacts, from folk art to propagandistic cinema, but also how the gaze has been manipulated to create new perceptions of the nation. The book should be read by all who are interested in the relation between vision and power. (Yomi Braester, University of Washington)

This book is a teaching textbook for both lower and upper level courses on modern Chinese history and/or modern visual culture. With fourteen chapters of well-illustrated original scholarship and a supplemental website providing resources for hundreds of images, the book introduces key themes of modern Chinese history while providing students with critical thinking skills in visual studies and analysis.
