About The Book
Rich with details of everyday life, this multifaceted social and cultural history of China’s leading metropolis in the twentieth century offers a kaleidoscopic view of Shanghai as the major site of Chinese modernization. Engaging the entire span of Shanghai’s modern history from the Opium War to the eve of the Communist takeover in 1949, Wen-hsin Yeh traces the evolution of a dazzling urban culture that became alternately isolated from and intertwined with China’s tumultuous history. Looking in particular at Shanghai’s leading banks, publishing enterprises, and department stores, she sketches the rise of a new maritime and capitalist economic culture among the city’s middle class. Making extensive use of urban tales and visual representations, the book captures urbanite voices as it uncovers the sociocultural dynamics that shaped the people and their politics.
