"TV China: institutions, programming, and audiences in Greater China and the Chinese diaspora"

Edited by Ying Zhu and Chris Berry

"Fills an important gap in both Chinese studies and media studies."—Lisa Rofel, University of California, Santa Cruz

"There is nothing currently comparable in English, and quite possibly in any language."—John Downing, Southern Illinois University

If radio and film were the emblematic media of the Maoist era, television has rapidly established itself as the medium of the "marketized" China and in the diaspora. In less than two decades, television has become the dominant medium across the Chinese cultural world. TV China is the first anthology in English on this phenomenon. Covering the People's Republic, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Chinese diaspora, these twelve original essays introduce and analyze the Chinese television industry, its programming, the policies shaping it, and its audiences.
