Reflections on Postmodernity: Streetlife China

Dirlik describes author Michael Dutton as the most gifted China analyst working today with poststructuralist methods and concepts. The current work, Streetlife China, contains a section on human rights abuses in China, with a focus less on heroic dissident voices being suppressed than on the desultory practices of the hooligans, pimps, prostitutes, and unemployed being extinguished.
