China's development from a traditional society to a technologically advanced, completely modern republic has been rapid. Due to developments since the mid-1980s, Chinese daily life for many has jumped directly from that constrained by an agricultural economy to that liberated by the information age. This volume chronicles these changes and their impact upon mass communication. It looks closely at Chinese newspaper reports and television programmes and listens to government officials and people in the street, providing readers with an insider's view of the current state of communication in China, from the political to the personal.
