Re: Chinese Social Science Web article on "The New Qing History"

Interesting. There now seems to be something like a taboo in China on describing and debating past Chinese empires as the empires that they of course were, and it may be this aversion which motivates the Chinese article. --I happen to have an article on this very topic (on "empire" as a taboo topic, in relation to the First Emperor terracotta soldiers) scheduled for the forthcoming inaugural issue of the new journal Verge: Studies in Global Asias, which I think will be out soon.
