Spanning half a century (1930-1987) of publication, the volumes in this series provide an unrivalled panorama and analysis of China in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. International in their authorship and cross-disciplinary in their range, they encompass history, philosophy, economics, language, literature and theatre.
The emergence of China as an economic force of world stature has created renewed interest in the study of the background literature. This collection makes available 40 classic works in the disciplines of history, politics, economics and philosophy covering a publishing span of some 50 years.
Key titles include:
Documentary History of Communist China (Brandt, Schwartz & Fairbank)
China's Economic System (Donnithorne)
The China Challenge (Goodman & Segal)
Health Care and Traditional medicine in China (Hillier & Jewell)
Confucian China and its Modern Fate (3 volumes) (Levenson)
Ways to Paradise (Loewe)
Rulers of China 221BC--1949AD (Moule)
Grand Titration (Needham)
