"This journal will try to distinguish itself from dozens of Chinese electronic journals already on internet, by not submitting to mainstream ideologies or orthodoxies when discussing social, political and theoretical issues. We regard it as imperative to examine the Western capitalist system with a critical eye, and retrospect China's experience of socialism with a wholistic view and historical objectiveness. We deeply believe China should develop along its own road, according to its own needs and will, rather than imitating the past experience of Western countries." Language: Chinese (GB, Big5, or as Gif)! Besides the journal this site contains a lot of important documents on contemporary China, available in Chinese and English!

    Supplied note: "We would like to introduce a new website, containing descriptions of a number of important Women's Magazines from the Republican Period from the collection of the Institute of Chinese Studies in Heidelberg and a bibliography on women's magazines in general and in China in particular. [...] The website is the product of an higher level undergraduate seminar taught at Heidelberg University in the summer of 2003. There is not much information in the secondary literature on these magazines and therefore, most of the information presented is based on a first (and cursory) reading of the magazines themselves. As far as possible, the institutional background and information on the editors and contributors to these magazines has been included, but many grey areas remain. It is our sincere hope that this website will continue to change and grow. The contributors to this website would be grateful to any readers willing to share any additional information they might have on any of these magazines, their editors or contributors. There is a "comments" button through which you can contact us and we will be happy to incorporate your contribution!"

    Language: Chinese (GIF).
    Self description: "Ling Lung Women's Magazine was published in the 1930s in Shanghai, China, at a time when women's role in society, at least in that sophisticated and foreign-influenced metropolis, was in rapid transition. [...] Ling Lung, a pocket-sized, slender, and inexpensive weekly, boldly ventured to meet these new needs by encouraging women to advance toward the good life through socially high-minded entertainment. It was filled with articles on fashion, interior decoration, pop psychology, and new careers; and also advice columns on love, sex, and marriage, as well as lavish illustrations of local and Hollywood celebrities. The wide array of advertisements for women's products are often just as revealing of life and aspirations as the words of the text. In short, the magazine is a gold mine for students of twentieth-century Chinese social history, and a balance to much of the prevailing literature which tends to emphasize only the political interests of the youth of that generation."

"This journal will try to distinguish itself from dozens of Chinese electronic journals already on internet, by not submitting to mainstream ideologies or orthodoxies when discussing social, political and theoretical issues. We regard it as imperative to examine the Western capitalist system with a critical eye, and retrospect China's experience of socialism with a wholistic view and historical objectiveness. We deeply believe China should develop along its own road, according to its own needs and will, rather than imitating the past experience of Western countries."

We have a new title and a new publishing arrangement but the mission of the journal remains as it was framed in 1969 by the Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars: to develop a humane and knowledgeable understanding of Asian societies and their efforts to maintain cultural integrity and to confront such problems as poverty, oppression, and imperialism [; and] to create alternatives to the prevailing trends in scholarship on Asia, which too often spring from a parochial cultural perspective and serve selfish interests and expansionism."
    Description: The Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars (CCAS) was founded in 1968 "in opposition to the brutal aggression of the United States in Vietnam and to the complicity or silence of our profession with regard to that policy" (original statement of purpose, Boston 1969). The initial focus of its bulletin "[...] was on the impact of U.S. power on the peoples of Southeast and East Asia -- and the efforts of Asian people to define their own past, present, and future along different lines, including anti-imperialist and revolutionary ones. [...] Our goals explicitly included examining the intellectual approaches by which Asia was understood in the West and the ways in which reigning theoretical frameworks in universities and professional institutions excluded Asian aspirations and experiences. Those goals, spelled out in our original statement of purpose, remain central to our scholarship" (latest statement of CAS, January 2001).

    (http://www.chinabulletin.com).
    An electronic bimonthly on social, political and historical issues of contemporary China, run mainly by a group of Chinese students studying in US. "This journal will try to distinguish itself from dozens of Chinese electronic journals already on internet, by not submitting to mainstream ideologies or orthodoxies when discussing social, political and theoretical issues. We regard it as imperative to examine the Western capitalist system with a critical eye, and retrospect China's experience of socialism with a wholistic view and historical objectiveness. We deeply believe China should develop along its own road, according to its own needs and will, rather than imitating the past experience of Western countries." Language: Chinese (GB, Big5, or as Gif)! Besides the journal this site contains a lot of important documents on contemporary China, available in Chinese and English!
