This volume introduces and analyzes the authors, works, movements, and debates that constitute Chinese literature from 1949 to the year 2000 from the Mainland, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, as well as the overseas diaspora.

Essays in Part One look at the mythology that deified Mao and his discourse, offer a comprehensive view of the changes and continuities in Taiwan's literature since 1945, and review literature from Hong Kong in the context of colonialism, Cold War ideology, and the politics of marginality. Part Two deals with the politics of writing and the formation (or deformation) of literary subjectivity in the 1950s and 1960s on the mainland and in Taiwan. Part Three evaluates the strategies that writers from all parts of China have employed in search of literary modernities. Part Four touches on some of the most prominent aspects of Chinese literature as it takes a postmodernist turn.
