290 China Review International: Vol. 24, No. 4, 2017 Xiaomei Chen. Staging Chinese Revolution: Theater, Film, and the Afterlives of Propaganda. New York: Columbia University Press, 2017. xii, 363 pp. Hardcover $60, ISBN 978-0-231-16638-6. E-book $59.99, ISBN 978-0-231-54161-9. Staging Chinese Revolution is the type of extraordinary book that can only be written by a senior scholar who has spent the better part of a lifetime amassing expert knowledge and ﬁrst-hand experience in a particular ﬁeld. As the third monograph and eighth book-length publication of Xiaomei Chen, a leading U.S.-based scholar of modern Chinese culture and performing arts, it represents a culmination of Chen’s decades of research on twentieth and twenty-ﬁrst century Chinese theater, as well as her enduring commitment to render the creativity and complexity of the modern Chinese stage legible and meaningful to international audiences. Rather than merely repeating Chen’s earlier work, however, Staging Chinese Revolution paves a genuinely new path, by both embarking on unfamiliar material and treating familiar works in fresh and exciting ways. Because of its commanding scope and unusual interdisciplinary approach, the book reaches beyond the ﬁeld of performance scholarship to speak to larger questions in the study of modern and contemporary China more
