"In a study at once ethnographic, historical and theoretical, Rofel contends that neoliberal subjectivities are created through the production of various desires - material, sexual, and affective - and that it is largely through their engagements with public culture that people in China are imagining and practicing appropriate desires for the post-Mao era. Drawing on her research over the past two decades among urban residents and rural migrants in Hangzhou and Beijing, Rofel analyzes the meanings that individuals attach to various public cultural phenomena and what their interpretations say about their understandings of post-socialist China and their roles within it."
