In addition, China: Culture and Society features a host of secondary resources, including scholarly essays, an interactive chronology, mini guides, and editors’ choices from the collection.
China: Trade, Politics and Culture 1793-1980
This digital collection offers English-language sources relating to China and the West, 1793-1980, including: papers of key individuals involved in the Chinese Maritime Customs service; papers of missionaries active in all regions of China; fully searchable run of the Chinese Recorder, 1867-1941, and more.
Foreign Office Files for China, 1919-1980
The complete British Foreign Office files dealing with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan during these decades of 1919-1980. The documents cover politics, industry, trade and cultural affairs and include eyewitness accounts, weekly and monthly summaries, and economic assessments and synopses on leading Chinese personalities.
