Abstract

of GPCR rhetoric. I do think we could do with fewer Dr. Phil homilies such as "Surely the world would be a better place if we all engage in honest exchange and take more responsibility for the manner in which we communicate" (p. 80), but by this point in the book the reader ought to be used to them. In sum, I didn't much like this book, but I expect I'll use it from time to time as a research tool and an authoritative compilation of Cultural Revolution rheto1 ric, if not as an adequately documented (statistically or scientifically) revelation of its short- and long-term impact on Chinese society. Howard Goldblatt Howard Goldblatt, a research professor of Chinese at Notre Dame, is an observer of contemporary Chinese and Taiwanese literature and culture, and a translator. notes . Interviewees for this study, of whom there were thirty-five, were asked the following questions: . What symbols and symbolic practices of the Cultural Revolution do you remember most? 2. What effect and impact do you think these symbols and symbolic practices had on you and the people around you in terms of thought patterns, cultural values, and communication behaviors? 3. Do
