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.

New Issue of The PRC History Review, Vol. 2, No. 4 (October 2017)

We are very pleased to announce that the latest issue of The PRC History Review is now available. Tani Barlow’s essay “Jiang Qing, Seriously” is the inaugural issue of a new series, “Provocations,” which offers a glimpse at in-progress research that pushes us to reconsider assumptions and established views in the field. 
We hope H-PRC subscribers will contribute to this new series: we invite submissions of think-pieces, teasers for upcoming publications, and insights from ongoing research.

P.S.: I think the cover alone, which is solely the product of Duke UP's amazing design team, is worth the price of the book.
