Now available to trial from Brill: The Chinese Students' Monthly Online
This August sees the release of a brand new primary source database in Asian Studies from Brill: The Chinese Students' Monthly Online.
The Chinese Students’ Monthly was the first magazine published by Chinese students in the United States from 1906 to 1931. The publication became the official voice of the growing Chinese student organisation, The Chinese Students’ Alliance.
The Monthly was the most influential publication among the Chinese students studying in the U.S. in the early 20th century. Among the student body were many important historical figures, such as Sao-Ke Alfred Sze, Wellington Koo, Hu Shi, Chao Yuanren and Xie Bingxin, who each contributed articles to the magazine.
The overseas Chinese is an emerging area of scholarly research and the Monthly includes valuable information for scholars in this field. The magazine discusses issues, events and developments in China during this important turning point in modern Chinese history, including changes in education, society, industry, agriculture, politics and economics.
The Chinese Students' Monthly Online is a full-text searchable online resource which makes these primary sources available to scholars and researchers in modern Chinese history, particularly those interested in the overseas Chinese.
The Chinese Students' Monthly Online is now available to trial. To request a free 30-day trial for your institution, please contact Bezi.
