Summary This is a collection of seven essays on media and society in China translated from the leading Chinese-language journal 'Open times'. Authored mostly by scholars based in China, this volume offers a panoramic view on contemporary Chinese thoughts regarding media industries in a rapidly transforming society, especially the central role played by digital media such as internet and smart phone. The book consists of three parts: (a) socialist media, transformed; (b) critical events and public interests; and (c) Internet, grassroots and social movements. Together they reflect a wide range of views on the past, present, and future of media reform and social transformation in China today.
