This richly illustrated book provides an innovative reinterpretation of the Cultural Revolution through the medium of the poster-a major component of popular print culture in China. Using an array of full color and black-and-white reproductions, an eminent group of scholars explores the discursive power of visual artforms in Chinese public life.
