Defending Criticism

Volume 9, Number 6, November/December 2010
by Sheng Wei

Article Description

Sheng Wei examines what he sees as critical writing’s ever increasing loss of voice, a condition which he believes began in the 1980s, and argues for responsibility to history and scholarship rather than to a desire for power in the determination of history.
