China Quotation of the Day: China Clichés

From 查建英 Zha Jianying's classic (but now seems outdated) China Pop: How Soap Operas, Tabloids and Bestsellers Are Transforming a Culture, published in 1995:


"There are many clichés about China.  Often, they circulate with the aid of famous icons: the Great Wall, the Chinese box, Mao, the smiling panda, and so on.  The latest is Tiananmen Square.  Since 1989, Tiananmen has dominated our fantasy about China like a massive, dark, bloody cloud.  Despite a continuous trickle of coverage about China's economic reforms and the more recent interesting in the booming Asia market, Tiananmen persists.  The images of tanks, blood and the small statue of Liberty crumbling to dust still haunt us.  In the minds of the Western public, China's face is forever tarnished: once again the distant giant has lapsed into its repressive, backward pattern, which all the money and the cheap labor markets cannot quite redeem."
