RRP $370.99

This book explores how the traditional ideal of Chinese manhood - the "wen" (cultural attainment) and "wu" (martial prowess) dyad - has been transformed by the increasing integration of China in the international scene. It discusses how increased travel and contact between China and the West are having a profound impact; showing how increased interchange with Western men, for whom "wu" is a more significant ideal, has shifted the balance in the classic Chinese dichotomy; and how the huge emphasis on wealth creation in contemporary China has changed the notion of "wen" itself to include business management skills and monetary power. The book also considers the implications of Chinese "soft power" outside China for the reconfigurations in masculinity ideals in the global setting. The rising significance of Chinese culture enables Chinese cultural norms, including ideals of manhood, to be increasingly integrated in the international sphere and to become hybridised. The book also examines the impact of the Japanese and Korean waves on popular conceptions of desirable manhood in China. Overall, it demonstrates that social constructions of Chinese masculinity have changed more fundamentally and become more global in the last three decades than any other time in the last three thousand years.

Yunnan- A Chinese Bridgehead To Asia

RRP $318.99

The Chinese province of Yunnan has been undergoing a dynamic process of repositioning, from a Southwestern periphery of the People's Republic of China (PRC) to a "bridgehead" between China and its neighbors in Southeast and South Asia. This repositioning has found expression in ideas about the province's geopolitical positioning, policy frameworks, involvement in transborder institutions, infrastructure development and commerce.

The author, Tim Summers, traces this process and its implications, demonstrating the extent of provincial agency in reform-era China and the growing global importance of "'south-south" economic and commercial interactions. The introductory chapters overview China's changing global relationships, summarize Yunnan's history and key elements in its regional and global interactions and outline the development since the 1980s of ideas concerning Yunnan's geopolitical positioning. The next three chapters consider three main areas of political economy in turn: transnational institutions, infrastructure and transport development and regional and bilateral ties between Yunnan and Southeast and South Asia.
