How should the project of cultural studies change for the twenty-first century? Does theory have general application? How should we evaluate revolutions? How should we define countries, like China, on the margins of modernity and post-modernity? Is a neo-Orientalism emerging in today's world?

These are questions Shaobo Xie and Wang Fengzhen ask a panel of North America's leading cultural critics. What emerges is a remarkable collection of interviews and dialogues that discuss culture, ideology, history, Marxism, modernity, post-modernity, post-colonialism, globalization, and the role of the university and the intellectual in today' society.

This collection distinguishes itself from other collections of interviews . . . the editors offer an insightful sampling of illuminating dialogues, which also make the volume particularly valuable for classroom use in courses in cultural studies.

-Robert Wess,University of Toronto Quarterly


This is a fascinating, engaging, and learned set of discussions centred on some of the most important questions of the day. These eminent scholars take the questions posed to them very seriously and provide a valuable set of responses to them, based on careful analysis and a broad familiarity with research in the field.

-Diana Brydon, University of Western Ontario


Since the 1980s, dialogue with China has been crucial in sharpening critical thought among American literary and cultural academic intellectuals, and this new volume carries that exchange into important new places, as a dozen distinct voices from America-including historians, feminists, and world-famous theorists-reply freely and deeply to an agenda of challenging questions from two Chinese scholars looking to the future.
