H-PRC is the H-Net presence of the PRC History Group, a network of scholars with interests in the history of the People’s Republic of China. We define history broadly, to encompass a wide variety of disciplinary approaches, and we understand the history of the PRC to include eras prior to the official change of state power in 1949.
The PRC History Group is pleased to announce the fifth issue in the PRC History Review Book Review Series. Yang Lin reviews Wang Zheng's Finding Women in the State: A Socialist Feminist Revolution in the People’s Republic of China, 1949-1964 (University of California Press, 2017), with a response from the author: http://prchistory.org/prc-history-review/
