Includes bibliographical references and index.
The economic, China, world history : a critique of pure ideology -- The economic and the state : the Asiatic mode of production -- The economic as transhistory : temporality, the market, and the Austrian school -- The economic as lived experience : semicolonialism and China -- The economic as culture and the culture of the economic : filming Shanghai.
Rebecca E. Karl interrogates the concept and practice of "the economic" as it was understood in China in the 1930s and the 1980s and 90s, showing how the use of Eurocentric philosophies, narratives, and conceptions of the economic that exist outside lived experiences fail to capture modern China's complex history.
