This paper examines three television dramas directed by the Chinese director Feng Xiaogang during the 1990s. These are Beijingers in New York (1993), Chicken Feathers (1994) and The Dark Side of the Moon (1997). The principal argument is that the three can be read as indicative of new modalities of freedom, expressed respectively as ambition, hope and desire. The serials also articulate a number of moral dilemmas facing intellectuals who contemplate a career in business.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
