The People's Peking Man: Popular Science and Human Identity in Twentieth-Century China

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The People's Peking Man musters rich archival materials and interviews, critical analyses, and comparative history of science to explore the discursive formations of national, local, and indeed human identities in twentieth-century China. In its synthesis of a variety of data sources and critical methods, the work is groundbreaking. Crucially, the book addresses the important decades between 1940 and 1970, while at the same time grounding the research in earlier periods and drawing necessary connections to contemporary cultural phenomena. It treats questions of science dissemination, popular science, and anti-superstition campaigns in Mainland China.
