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's society.
