China‘s Millennials follows youth from around China as they struggle to cope with the country‘s wrenching socioeconomic and demographic transition after years of lofty expectations. Largely thought to be pacified by a booming economy and a nationalistic education instituted after the Tiananmen crackdown, young Chinese are again beginning to become a vocal force for change. Fish deftly captures youthful hopes, disillusionment, and rebellion in a system that is scrambling to keep them in line””and, increasingly, scrambling to adapt when its youth refuse to conform.
