China from empire to nation-state

by Hui Wang | 03 October 2014
Synopsis
This translation of the introduction to Wang Hui's 'Rise of Modern Chinese Thought' (2004) makes part of his four-volume masterwork available to English readers for the first time. A leading public intellectual in China, Wang charts the historical currents that have shaped Chinese modernity from the Song Dynasty to the present day, and along the way challenges the West to rethink basic assumptions about what it means to be modern. This book exposes distortions implicit in Western critiques of Chinese history, which long held that China was culturally resistant to modernization until the Qing Empire's collapse in 1912.
