Summary note
"Twenty years after a return from fundamentalism to economic reality, China has become the world's tenth largest economy and an increasingly important global power. Despite the rise of fundamentalism and postmodernism in other parts of the world, the pursuit of modernity was an ongoing historical movement in late 20th-century China. He Ping focuses on China's quest for and experience of modernity."--BOOK JACKET.
