Part of the China Academic Library book series (CHINALIBR)


This year marks the 80th anniversary of the May Fourth Movement. Over the past near-century, China has been in a process of cultural transition that will continue quite long into the future. The core issues of debate during the period have been the relations between tradition and modernity, China and the West, focusing mainly on three interrelated topics: the attitude towards traditional Chinese culture, the approach to receiving Western culture, and the repositioning of Chinese culture in the light of current contemporary cultural developments in the world.
