The End of the Revolution shatters the myth that China's recent history has been a miracle of progress. In this original and wide-ranging study, Wang Hui examines the intellectual roots of his nation's social and political problems, arguing that China's revolutionary history and its current liberalization are part of the same discourse of modernity. He calls for alternatives to both the present capitalist model of development and to the politics of China's authoritarian past.

From the May Fourth Movement to Tiananmen Square, The End of the Revolution details a broad sweep of social and intellectual history in an effort to forge a new path for China's future.
