I was reading Charles Holcombe's 'In The Shadow of the Han' and in the introduction he devotes quite a lot of time talking about Marxist historiography in China and how the Chinese saw their history (at least in 1994) i.e. class struggle etc. Since it's nearly twenty years since the book was published, I wanted to know what the current state of historiography was in China today. Are Chinese historians still strongly inclined to a Marxist viewpoint today?
