"Eminent Chinese of the Qing Period (1644-1911/2) is a standard reference used by scholars, meticulously compiled and unique in its scope. This much-loved work was edited by Arthur Hummel, produced under the auspices of the Library of Congress, and published by the US Government Printing Office during World War II. Its contributors comprise the founders of the profession of Chinese history research and its teaching in the Unites States, including John King Fairbank, Têng Ssû-yü, L. Carrington Goodrich, Fêng Chia-shêng, Knight Biggerstaff, Nancy Lee Swann, and the two driving research forces Fang Chao-ying and Tu Lien-chê. The 2016 Berkshire edition contains the original 800 biographical sketches as well as its extensive front and back matter. The Wade-Giles transliteration has been converted to modern pinyin and the book includes a pinyin/Wade-Giles conversion table and an up-to-date bibliography. Professor Pamela K. Crossley, who digitized part of the original publication, has written the introduction, touching upon the historical context of this publication as well as its continuing importance for modern readers and researchers. Portraits, illustrations, maps, biographies of the original contributors, a timeline, and a glossary, as well as regularly published updates and reviews of individual entries will be published on Berkshire's online educational platform ChinaConnectU"--Provided by publisher
