Dating from the onset of the Japanese occupation of China in 1937 through to the twenty-first century, the images in this book represent Chinese propaganda art. A country’s propaganda posters are a valuable record of it’s challenges and fears as well as a reflection of its cultural mores. Opening with a brief introduction to the history of graphic arts propaganda in China, this volume presents the posters chronologically, allowing readers to witness changes in style as the subject matter follows seismic changes in Chinese history, such as the building of the People’s Republic, the Korean War, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution and its iconic leaders, the growing acceptance of modernization and economic reforms, and China’s current status as one of the most rapidly developing countries in the world. The book’s posters are drawn from the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam and the Landsberger Collection, which combine to make arguably one of the Western world’s large collections of Chinese posters.
