Praise

“A thoughtful contribution to the writing of a new and nuanced cultural history of the Cultural Revolution. Pang’s work brings a fresh optic to the question of how Chinese people lived, felt and made art in a fraught age of revolution.”
—Andrew Jones, author of Yellow Music: Media Culture and Colonial Modernity in the Chinese Jazz Age

“Pang Laikwan’s meticulous research draws the reader into a world in which this art of copying, of making models and of typifications framed the cultural and political realm and then spread across the social landscape to fashion life itself. Offering new and exciting insights based upon impeccable research, this is one book about the Cultural Revolution that should not be missed.”
—Michael Dutton, coauthor of Beijing Time

“A major intervention into a fraught field. Luminously opening new and old channels of inquiry, Pang forces a reconsideration of the processes and politics of cultural production in China’s Cultural Revolutionary decade.”
—Rebecca Karl, author of Mao Zedong and China in the Twentieth-Century World: A Concise History
