Abstract

544 China Review International: Vol. 16, No. 4, 2009 4. One example: When discussing current dilemmas facing the PLA, Li notes: "[I]t is reasonable to assume that the lack of a social welfare and retirement system pressures only-child [military] officers to retire early and accept a better-paying job outside the military in order to support their parents and grandparents now and themselves later" (p. 283). Xiaoping Lin. Children of Marx and Coca-Cola: Chinese Avant-Garde Art and Independent Cinema. Honolulu: University of Hawai`i Press, 2010. ix, 312 pp. Hardcover $47.00, isbn 082-483336-8. Xiaoping Lin's study of contemporary Chinese avant-garde art and independent cinema is the second offering of the newly launched Critical Interventions series published by the University of Hawai`i Press and edited by Sheldon Hsiao-peng Lu. The book successfully brings together a range of critical perspectives and artistic domains including film, video, installation, photography, and performance art. It examines them in the context of China's growing status in the global cultural arena. It provides an informative account of recent aesthetic developments in the light of the dramatic sociocultural transformations that have occurred in postsocialist China in the past three decades since the inception of Deng Xiaoping's economic reforms.
