(p.214) Chapter 10 Revolutionary Memory and National Landscape
Exhibiting the Past

Kirk A. Denton

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter examines the intentions and expectations motivating the state's promotion of red tourism and speculates on the degree to which red tourists come to accept these intentions and expectations. It first offers some background on the history of revolutionary tourism and the more recent state promotion of red tourism. It then looks at three sites, all key destinations in the revolutionary tourism circuit: Jinggangshan, the Hunan “Golden Triangle,” and Xibaipo. It hones in on some of the particular historical resonances and unique character of red tourism at each site. Through these examples, the chapter attempts to highlight the more important dimensions of red tourism on a national scale and their implications for the politics of historical memory in postsocialist China.

Keywords:   revolutionary tourism, red tourism, China, Jinggangshan, Hunan Golden Triangle, Xibaipo, tourism promotion, historical memory
