Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Signposts of Self-Realization: Evolution, Ethics and Sociality in Modern Chinese Literature and Film contains the table of contents and acknowledgements. The book discusses that the many-faceted evolution of Chinese modernity can perhaps be best grasped by observing how the subject of the self weathered its bumpy passage through social upheavals and cultural dislocations on its way to maturity and realization in the modern age. It delineates the key signposts that map out the trajectory of its faltering, laborious but ultimately fulfilling growth.

Keywords: Chinese modernity; cultural dislocations; signposts; social upheavals
