Beijing Scene, Volume 6, Issue 11, December 24 - 30

FEATURE STORY: Progressive Pioneers
In September this year, Time magazine published a special issue devoted to the 50-year history of the People's Republic of China. Entitled "China's Amazing Half-Century" it is a collection of personal accounts which chronicle events and experiences over five decades of Communist Party rule. Although never published in China, Time magazine has granted Beijing Scene permission to republish several of the articles. Covering women's issues, popular literature, avant-garde film and rock 'n' roll, each of the four articles selected offers a unique perspective on contemporary Chinese culture and society.

ASK AYI: Star Struck Ayi
Hey Ayi,
What do the five yellow stars on the Chinese flag symbolize? Why does China's national emblem have ears of corn on it? And why is the song The East is Red not the national anthem when every single Mao lighter you buy plays that tune? (For that matter, what is the national anthem?)
Signed,
Starstruck
