350pp, index, glossary, paperback. Text in French. This monograph looks at the "Circle of Rock", a community of Peking based rock musicians. It is a contribution to the study of individualism in China at the beginning of the 1990s. The fight between traditional and modern, or individualistic values inside the society can be read at different levels: through the texts of the songs, through the musicians' friendship and through the comparison of parties or dancing events and rock concerts and through the expression of emotions manifested by songs, slogans, banners, dancing etc. These concerts unite a society which has been torn apart by the events of Tianamen Square in 1989.
