Jiwei Ci, Dialectic of the Chinese Revolution: From Utopianism to Hedonism

Ci, Jiwei (Fellow, 1991-92)

Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press, 1994

From the publisher's description:

Behind the profound social and economic changes now taking place in China is a complex history of communism's invention and loss of meaning. This history, from 1949 to the present, has been extensively studied by scholars using the methods of history and political science. Dialectic of the Chinese Revolution makes an innovative departure from these studies through a series of reflections on the history of communist China as a history of consciousness.
