A favorable review of Assistant Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures Zhuoyi Wang’s book Revolutionary Cycles in Chinese Cinema, 1951-1979 recently appeared on Viewfinder, the journal of British Universities Film & Video Council. The book was published in July by Palgrave Macmillan.

The review was written by Chris Berry, professor of film studies at King’s College in London and a leading scholar of Chinese film studies.

He commended Wang for making “an important intervention into the study of Chinese film history” and said Wang offers “not only a livelier and more engaging picture of Chinese revolutionary era film history but also a model for conducting this new kind of film history.”

The book, according to Berry, “deserves a readership beyond those with a special interest in Chinese cinema, because Wang argues for [...] a cultural rather than either text or production-based approach to film history in general” and wrote, “The overall result is exemplary and merits wide attention.”
