Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Night life in Shanghai, at least since the 1990s, has become an important sexual contact zone. This history of Shanghai nocturnal culture tracks the way the scene has evolved, from the 1920s and 30s, when the action took place between professional hostesses and their male customers, to the 1980s and beyond, when Chinese women became key patrons of the city's nightlife, part of a growing sexual revolution in China. Before the 90s, social interactions between Chinese and foreigners were somewhat restricted (and sex between them was taboo), but now barriers to Sino-foreign social and sexual relations have been mostly removed. Farrer and Field's ethno-history includes closes looks at the musical subcultures of Shanghai clubs (jazz and rock, mostly, going back to 1920s Jazz Age), and sketches the ways in which nightlife neighborhoods have become erotic fantasy zones, with massage parlors, "hair salons," and hostess clubs. Because the clubs attract sex workers, people from all over the world come to explore their sexual desires and fantasies in Shanghai. More broadly, the authors treat the city's connections to policing, governance, and prostitution to illuminate the processes of social transformation and globalization that flourish in this model post-colonial urb. With its increasingly complex subcultures, Shanghai has come to resemble New York, London, and Tokyo, with their mature nightlife industries, Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: The pulsing beat of its nightlife has long drawn travelers to the streets of Shanghai, where the night scene is a crucial component of the city’s image as a global metropolis. In Shanghai Nightscapes, sociologist James Farrer and historian Andrew David Field examine the cosmopolitan nightlife culture that first arose in Shanghai in the 1920s and that has been experiencing a revival since the 1980s. Drawing on over twenty years of fieldwork and hundreds of interviews, the authors spotlight a largely hidden world of nighttime pleasures—the dancing, drinking, and socializing going on in dance clubs and bars that have flourished in Shanghai over the last century.

The book begins by examining the history of the jazz-age dance scenes that arose in the ballrooms and nightclubs of Shanghai’s foreign settlements. During its heyday in the 1930s, Shanghai was known worldwide for its jazz cabarets that fused Chinese and Western cultures. The 1990s have seen the proliferation of a drinking, music, and sexual culture collectively constructed to create new contact zones between the local and tourist populations. Today’s Shanghai night scenes are simultaneously spaces of inequality and friction, where men and women from many different walks of life compete for status and attention, and spaces of sociability, in which intercultural communities are formed. Shanghai Nightscapes highlights the continuities in the city’s nightlife across a turbulent century, as well as the importance of the multicultural agents of nightlife in shaping cosmopolitan urban culture in China’s greatest global city.
