How Chinese cinema and global Chinese culture intersect over questions of identity
Chinese Connections Critical Perspectives on Film, Identity, and Diaspora Press Reviews
According to its editors...Chinese Connections blazes a new trail, and it is easy to agree with them.... At times, the eclecticism of the contributions threatens to thwart the attempts of the book's editors to impose order; but in a sense, it is the sheer scope and number of its essays which furnish this volume with its core strength. Chinese Connections contains 19 chapters in a volume just shy of 300 pages; and these pieces manage to cover essential films and essential filmmakers at the same time as straying into less tried terrain in stimulating ways. The result is a volume that has something to say to everyone from undergraduates to film specialists. Indeed, although the last few years have seen the publication of several high-quality, broad-sweep volumes on Chinese film - both nationally and transnationally - few have quite the reach and range of this one. - The China Quarterly
