Summary
"Information Fantasies focuses on the cultural practices and media imaginations around information technologies, cybernetics, and systems theory in late 1970s and 1980s China. Xiao Liu explores China's rise to prominence in the global economy through revisiting these earlier 'information fantasies' present in science fiction, modernist writing, films, scientific treatises, historical monographs, and key intellectual debates"--
