9789622017627: From Youthful Manuscripts to River Elegy: The Chinese Popular Cultural Movement and Political Transformation, 1979-1989 (Institute of Chinese Studies Monographs in Contemporary Chinese Culture, 2)

Among the many books dealing with the epochal changes of China during the eighties, this is probably the first full-length account of the popular cultural movement, or wenhuare. It is the result of collaboration between two Chinese intellectuals: a Beijing cultural activist who had himself played a central role in the movement, and a Hong Kong academic who had made first-hand observations of many of the events described. However, it is not personal experience, but rather interviews and documentary evidence on which this work is founded. The narrative has two parallel lines of development, which constantly interact with each other: the political transformation of China during the critical dozen years 1977-89; and the cultural movement itself. The latter is followed from an abortive attempt in 1982 to publish the minjian journal Youthful Manuscripts, through the blossoming of many popular cultural enterprises, including the potent River Elegy television series, and finally to the Tiananmen tragedy, at which point the two lines of development finally coalesced. The book is filled with details, including the background, character, and personal connections of a large number of people who are related to the movement, which make interesting reading and can be a useful source for further studies.
