A couple of strange book titles

I’ve come across a couple of interesting book titles lately.
The first is a Chinese book whose English title is Have Some Fun Through Hardship. I wonder what Chairman Mao would have said about that.

The other is Chinese Governmentalities, which I think takes some beating for utter pretentiousness. As the website says, “it opens discussions of governmentality to ‘other worlds’ and the glocal [sic] politics of the present.” Hmm…
