    "In this quite stunning book, Petrus Liu offers a new intervention into gender and sexuality studies. He establishes queer perspectives as a way of thinking about the doubleness of China, and tracks how sexuality has been produced as a new ethnic identity within an emerging pluralist framework, and how queer Marxism contests this production.   Fincher’s book on Leftover Women is a refreshing work within the topic of China and gender, which argues that the labeling of women as being “leftover” is part of a state-sponsored media campaign that has created a greater disparity between men and women in China today – contrary to a popular assumption that women have benefited from.

    LGBT+ in China’s ancient history There is plenty of evidence of homosexuality having existed throughout the history of the Middle Kingdom. Indeed, homosexuality has been a common practice within many dynasties until Western culture came to influence Chinese thinking. Noam Chomsky, a leading critic of U.S. foreign policy, has commented that the terminology "loss of China" is revealing of U.S. foreign policy attitudes: In , China declared independence, an event known in Western discourse as "the loss of China" – in the US, with bitter recriminations and conflict over who was responsible for that loss.

      The western story, in its most usual forms, represents the American version of the ever appealing oldest of man’s legends about himself, that of the sun-god hero, the all-conquering valiant who strides through dangers undaunted, righting wrongs, defeating villains, rescuing the fair and the weak and the helpless — and the western story does this [ ]. Spaces between Us is an excellent work of queer auto-critique. It speaks to queer of color, queer diasporic, and queer migration literatures – literatures that challenge the whiteness and homonationalism of queer studies and politics while urging alliance-building efforts — while extending these critiques in innovative and vital ways. —.

Book Description. Lala (lesbian) and gay communities in mainland China have emerged rapidly in the 21st century. Alongside new freedoms and modernizing reforms, and with mainstream media and society increasingly tolerant, lalas still experience immense family and social pressures to a degree that this book argues is deeply gendered.

Queer China is the result of a decade-long multi-disciplinary research undertaken by Hongwei Bao. It breaks new ground and brings a non-Western perspective to the wide variety of artistic activity currently reflecting LGBTQ+ life in contemporary China.

The book weaves together original historical and archival research, analysis of texts, media. This is a serious, albeit occasionally dry, documentary challenging Western ideas of Communist China. For anyone interested in queer China, or in queer studies, or, indeed in how we live today.

Valerie wrote: "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West is a "Western?"" I consider the term "Western" to mean fiction -- although the list maker didn't specify such. That certainly doesn't apply to Dee Brown's book.

Western author Willa Cather is perhaps the most famous lesbian of the Old West era, at least, according to a book Gay Men & Women who Enriched the World by Thomas Cowan. And yet again, American Indian cultures had far less problem with this subject than their Anglo neighbors. While most of the books are in English, there are also editions in Chinese.
