Shorenstein APARC releases two major new books through Stanford University Press

As part of its ongoing series of "Studies of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center", Shorenstein APARC announces two major new titles on the Chinese Cultural Revolution and the genealogy, politics, and legacy of ethnic nationalism in Korea.

The first, The Chinese Cultural Revolution as History, edited by Joseph W. Esherick, Paul G. Pickowicz, and Andrew G. Walder, shows how the Cultural Revolution was experienced by ordinary Chinese at the base of urban and rural society. The second title, by Shorenstein APARC director Gi-Wook Shin, examines the blood-based notion of Korean identity that has come to override other forms of identity in the modern era.

Both books are available for purchase from the Stanford University Press website, through the links given below.
