In Chinese:

1) 《对话的喧声---巴赫金的文化转型理论》

The book is a comparatively systematic and comprehensive introduction to and interpretation of Bakhtin's literary and aesthetic ideas. The author first describes the significant impact of Bakhtin's cultural theory "dialogue theory" in the current age and then analyzes his life and the background and process of the formation of his ideas and the construction of his own philosophy, among which, "dialogue theory", "polyphonic novel" and "cultural carnival" are the author's focus of analysis. Besides the in-depth study of Bakhtin from the above mentioned respects, the author also investigates the process of acceptance of Bakhtin in the Chinese cultural circle and the interpretation of Bakhtin's theories from the Chinese perspective.
2) 《妖魔化中国的背后》
3) 《妖魔化与媒体轰炸》
When the Balkans were groaning painfully in the smoke and gunfire of war, when the Chinese were protesting indignantly for the death of three Chinese journalists, the U.S. mainstream media, however, then started an unprecedented "media bombing " on the public. The two chief authors of the book happened to be in the U.S. by then and witnessed the war of information issued by local newspapers and TV programs, which twisted rights and wrongs and shaped public opinions. They felt personally the bias and enmity of the deceived public. Based on their own experience and ideas, the book is a profound revelation of the true identity of Western mainstream media as news hegemony.
The book is again the collaboration of Mr. Li Xiguang and Mr. Liu Kang after "Behind the Demonized China" and is an enlightening and cautionary work for the public.
4) 《文化•传媒•全球化》
The book focuses on issues of contemporary China and globalization, emphasizes the major theme "contemporary China" and records the author's feelings about Chinese cultural changes. The editing of the book also follows the above mentioned track, as it revolves around the major theme of China and selects scattered articles published in recent years in areas of aesthetics, cultural studies, media, and observation of the Western academia. Starting from the relationship between aesthetics and Marxism, the book ponders on China's historical path of modernization since the 20th century. The book strives to sort out an abstract path in the chaotic mass of historical data and provides the readers with a glimpse of the cultural heritage which still exerts a huge impact on contemporary China.

简介:Although Chinese Marxism—primarily represented by Maoism—is generally seen by Western intellectuals as monolithic, Liu Kang argues that its practices and projects are as diverse as those in Western Marxism, particularly in the area of aesthetics. In this comparative study of European and Chinese Marxist traditions, Liu reveals the extent to which Chinese Marxists incorporate ideas about aesthetics and culture in their theories and practices. In doing so, he constructs a wholly new understanding of Chinese Marxism.
