Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Spanning three centuries, China: Culture and Society provides access to the Wason Pamphlet collection in its entirety. Mostly in English and published between c.1750 and 1929, these rare pamphlets make up one of the most extensive collections of literature on China and the Chinese in the Western world.

As there is no comparable digital project offering this type of material, this project meets the need for English language research sources relating to China and the West, and addresses a wide variety of research interests and topics surrounding Chinese history, religion, culture and everyday life.
