Rural art during the Cultural Revolution

Dear colleagues, 

I am starting a project on socially-engaged art in the countryside and I am doing some background historical research. I was wondering if any of you had experience doing research in local archives on rural art during the Cultural Revolution. I would like to know what to expect before going back to China in the summer. Also, do you have any suggestion for secondary literature (in Chinese or English) on the topic? 

Many thanks,

Zhou Yanhua

 
 

Re: Looking for Research on Chinese Perceptions of, and Experience With, National Debt

First thought on places to look are

1.) Sun Yan, The Chinese Reassessment of Socialism, 1976-1992

2.) Zhang Shu Guang, Beijing's Economic Statecraft during the Cold War, 1949–1991

2.) Amy King, China-Japan Relations after World War Two: Empire, Industry and War, 1949-1971 (Cambridge University Press, 2016)

3.) Julian Gewirtz, Unlikely Partners

Best,

Looking for Research on Chinese Perceptions of, and Experience With, National Debt

I am looking for literature focused on China’s relationship with internal and foreign debt throughout its entire history, but primarily as the country began to modernize economically during the 1970s.  Any suggestions of books or articles focused on how debt has been viewed or used in China’s foreign or domestic politics would be greatly welcomed and appreciated. Thank-you.
