Abstract

18 China Review International: Vol. 25, No. 1, 2018 complementary to this one. Similarly to the 2018 publication, the book brings together scholars of ancient as well as of contemporary China, scholars in the field of politics as well as in those of literature and culture. However, due to this earlier volume’s primary focus on censorship most of the contributions dealt with the structure and system developed by governments of different times in order to regulate and control cultural production. In contrast to these strategies, taboos are more difficult to grasp. Having a stronger focus on individual cases, the new book offers another perspective which makes it possible to have a better understanding of the interconnections between written or unwritten rules and daily life. Furthermore, it especially shows that bans and taboos are not something fixed and stable but are rather subject to change. In this regard it is remarkable that one area which is addressed in the 2003 book is completely missing from the 2018 volume. This is the vast field of internet or digital media, which, despite all the frequently discussed restrictions and walls imposed upon it, offers an immense space for words and talking of any
