This paper provides a 'state of the field' view of what the authors refer to as the 'new cultural history' of Japanese-occupied China. It explores how this small but growing field is beginning to provide new perspectives on questions of 'collaboration' and 'resistance' that have dominated many recent studies of wartime China. In addition, the authors argue that more research needs to focus on elite forms of Chinese cultural expression under occupation (a topic which has hitherto eluded serious academic scrutiny). This introduction also introduces the four key papers which make up this special issue.
