Abstract:

In recent television series such as Vanishing Son and Martial Law Chinese protagonists have come to function as loci for the apparent resolution of some of the deepest contradictions of contemporary society. In this essay Gina Marchetti demonstrates how these Asian characters bridge the gap between the working poor and the bourgeoisie, yet always remain outsiders themselves.
