Product Details


“A central figure among a group of writers and academics known collectively as the New Left.”—The New York Times Magazine

“One of China’s leading historians and most interesting and influential public intellectuals.”—Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Los Angeles Times

“Wang Hui brings a distinctive Chinese voice to the discussion of globalization and neoliberalism.”—Chinese Development Brief

“Our focus on the country’s future has led to a de facto collusion with the Chinese government in ignoring its past … In The End of the Revolution, the leading Chinese critic Wang Hui offers an alternative: an undivided narrative of modern Chinese history which makes better sense.”—John Gittings, The Guardian

“Immensely valuable.”—Choice

“Wang Hui [is] one of the strongest critics of contemporary inequality and the marketization of society and politics in China. [This] nuanced and highly theorized investigation into the relationship between revolutionary traditions and the rise of neoliberal capitalism … has implications beyond the field of China studies.”—Alexander Day, Criticism

“The best book regarding Western misconceptions of contemporary China.”—Artforum
