Chapter Summary

This chapter of the book presents an appendix discussing the glossary of Chinese and Japanese characters. The book addresses both academic and general audiences. The general reader interested in issues of globalization and popular culture can gain insight into the vicissitudes of the new media in twenty-first-century China. For scholars of contemporary China, it provides a slice of the country's vibrant, complex, and at times subversive popular cultural scene. And for scholars of gender and women's studies, it presents several case studies showing how Chinese women negotiate their own representation in a market economy by redefining and reimagining romantic love and gender relationships through writing and reading Web romances.

Keywords: Chinese women; twenty-first-century China; Web romances
