Review:

"The study by Robert St. Clair and Wei Song is challenging, refreshing, and innovative. It is a timely and valuable addition to our concepts and understanding of culture. As argued by the authors, culture changes all the time and we need regularly to re-examine our concepts and understanding." - Prof. Robert W. Vaagan Oslo University "... the authors have introduced the concept of cultural space in terms of layers of cultural time... It is in this interface [between past and present] that the past is redefined, revised, reinterpreted, or reinvented in order to adjust to the new configurations of meaning associated with the present." - Prof. Yu Xin Jia Harbin Institute of Technology"
