The Spirit of Selflessness in Maoist China : Socialist Medicine and the New Man, Hardback Book

The Spirit of Selflessness in Maoist China : Socialist Medicine and the New Man Hardback

Description

Assuming power in 1949, the Chinese Communist Party was soon faced with a crucial problem: how to construct the socialist 'New Man'?

Using Foucault's theory of 'technologies of the self', Lynteris examines the conflict between self-cultivation and the abolition of the self in the biopolitically neuralgic field of 'socialist medicine'.
