Buffeted by change, China, as a people and civilization, has never failed to stimulate the imagination. China scholars and experts have been painstakingly searching China's past and present experiences for answers to explanations to the many accomplishments and perplexing problems that China has experienced in recent times. At the same time, businessmen from all over the world rush to cut a piece of the "China Market" that offers a billion consumers. To tourists, China offers more than her enchanting natural beauty, kaleidoscopic culture, and exotic food. It is a vast and ancient land where travel is still an adventure as well as a learning experience. This combination of scholarly, commercial, and popular interests has generated a large quantity of literature on every aspect of Chinese life during the past two decades. This bibliography reflects these combined interests. There are literally thousands of English publications on China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, with a relatively small number on Macao. In this volume, the vast majority of entries are monographs and annual publications, with a small selection of government documents, reports, and research papers.

Due to the large number of publications, materials of less than 50 pages are generally excluded. The bibliography is broken up into sections by subject headings, and cross-references refer the researcher to related topics. The introduction refers those interested in literature in other languages to related bibliographies.

Richard T. Wang (Ph.D., University of Virginia) has been a librarian and teacher in East Asian studies for more than thirty years and is currently Chinese Studies Librarian and adjunct faculty of Chinese Studies at the University of California, San Diego. He is the author of several subject bibliographies including Ming Studies in Japan and Major Sources for Chinese Population Studies.
