The State, the Teahouse, and the Public Sphere

(p.206) Conclusion
The Teahouse under Socialism

Di Wang

Cornell University Press

The Conclusion weaves together the broader themes of cultural continuity and discontinuity, of conflicts between national and local cultures, and public life and public sphere. Teahouses, a thoroughly old-fashioned Chinese phenomenon, had never before experienced vicissitudes like those in the second half of the 20th century. But the fact that they survived and then flourished, aiding urban public life in the process, underscores the vitality of local culture and rise of public sphere.
