The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Chinese Culture contains nearly 1,200 entries written by an international team of specialists to enable readers to explore a range of diverse and fascinating cultural subjects from prisons to rock groups, underground Christian churches to TV talk shows and radio hotlines. Experimental artists with names such as ‘Big-Tailed Elephants’ and ‘The North-Pole Group’ nestle between the covers alongside entries on lotteries, gay cinema, political jokes, sex shops, theme parks, ‘New Authoritarians’ and ‘Little Emperors’. These, as well as more traditional subjects and biographical entries, are indexed under eighteen categories for easy thematic reference.
