An essay in remembrance of historian Marilyn B. Young (1937-20170), by Rebecca Karl, reposted from the H-Net Book Channel
Here is a link to Rebecca Karl's response to a review of Roseann Lake's new book Leftover in China. Both the review and professor Karl's response were originally posted on MCLC.
You might check the files of the British Government (stored in London or available online through a database) to see if they made any observations about Sino-Swiss relations.
Note: This was originally posted on H-Asia but I'm reposting here as it might be of interest to H-PRC members.
Seeking panelists for the AHA Annual Meeting - Ethnic Minorities in the PRC
by Dongjo Shin
I am currently organizing a panel proposal for the AHA Annual Meeting in Chicago (Jan. 3 - 9, 2019).
I am working on a book project (Habilitation) on Sino-Swiss relations in the Cold War. I am particularly interested in the use of Switzerland as a hub for Chinese business, diplomatic, propaganda, and intelligence networks. Unfortunately, I began my research after the Foreign Ministry Archive restricted access to its holdings.
Congratulations to Sigrid Schmalzer, whose book Red Revolution, Green Revolution: Scientific Farming in Socialist China won the 2018 Joseph Levenson Post-1900 prize at the Association for Asian Studies. Here is the announcement.
