    Om Gutenberg in Shanghai

    Relying on documents previously unavailable to both Western andChinese researchers, this history demonstrates how Westerntechnology and evolving traditional values resulted in the birth of aunique form of print capitalism that would have a far-reaching andirreversible influence on Chinese culture. In the mid-1910s, whathistorians call the "Golden Age of Chinese Capitalism" began,accompanied by a technological transformation that included the drasticexpansion of China's "Gutenberg revolution." Thisis a vital reevaluation of Chinese modernity that refutes viewsthat China's technological development was slowed by culture orthat Chinese modernity was mere cultural continuity.
