Good news! SBU Libraries is beginning a trial run of The North China Herald. What does this mean for you, dear patrons? Wonderful things. Read on to learn more about what you could learn from this.
The English-language North China Herald is the prime printed source in any language for the history of the foreign presence in China from around 1850 to 1940s. During this so-called ‘treaty century’ (1842-1943) the Western Powers established a strong presence in China through their protected enclaves in major cities. It was published weekly in Shanghai, at the heart of China’s encounter with the Euro-American world in a city at the forefront of developments in Chinese politics, culture, education and the economy.
The trial of The North China Herald will run through November 6th. Enjoy!
