China skipped the transgressive, constestatory part of postmodernism and moved directly to the compromised, commercialized offspring. A question always haunts me: how can a common reader, with his mind being shaped by the conventional realistic thinking about history and without receiving enough teachings from postmodern historiography, be well conscious of the intention behind the apparent postmodern “falsifying” of history Actually, I often observe two kinds of typical reactions to it: some would be very annoyed and think it as totally irresponsible lying, while some others would just enjoy it as light fantasies.
