Chinese Worlds

Series Editor: GREGOR BENTON, Flemming Christiansen, Hong Liu, Terence Gomez, Delia Davin

Chinese Worlds publishes high-quality scholarship, research monographs, and source collections on Chinese history and society. 'Worlds' signals the diversity of China, the cycles of unity and division through which China's modern history has passed, and recent research trends toward regional studies and local issues. It also signals that Chineseness is not contained within borders - ethnic migrant communities overseas are also 'Chinese worlds.'
