Within China, the discipline of American Studies spans a wide
variety of concerns and preoccupations, reflecting its practical
diversity in a transnational setting. Essays in this volume by
close to forty scholars, the majority most of them based in
mainland China, reflect on the past history and current teaching of
American Studies within China, placing these in comparative
perspectives. The nature of globalization, the transmission of
ideas and practices across cultural boundaries, the formulation and
meaning of identity in cross-national communications, constitute
major themes in contemporary American Studies in China. For
officials and commentators alike, the past, present, and future
state of Sino-American relations are also an overriding
preoccupation of China's America-watchers. Overall, this collection
allows the reader to sample and appreciate the state of the field
of American Studies in today's China.
