List member might be interested in the publication of the paperback edition of "Television in Post-Reform China: Serial Dramas, Confucian Leadership and the Global Television Market" (Routledge, 2009) 

The book discusses how public/popular discourse has been powerfully channeled through the development of China's most popular television programming -- serial dramas in primetime – and parallels this with the leading intellectual debates and movements of the era and the rhetoric and policies of the state. It also provides cross-cultural comparisons that parallel the textual and institutional strategies of transnational Chinese language TV dramas with dramas from the three leading centers of transnational television production, the US, Brazil and Mexico in Latin America, and the Korean-led East Asia region. The comparison reveals creative connections while it also explores how the emergence of a Chinese cultural-linguistic market, together with other cultural-linguistic markets, complicates the power dynamics of global cultural flows.
