Between 1953 and 1998, with the exception of the year 1983, first every week, then every two weeks and finally twice a month, China News Analysis published analyses of the current situation in China. As its first editor, Fr. László Ladányi wrote in the first issue, it had the purpose of „serving all those who want to follow events inside China“.
Based on a careful reading of a collection of Chinese newspapers and magazines, the analyses presented in the 1625 issues of this Newsletter are an indispensable tool for all those who want to understand the evolution of the People’s Republic in the second half of the twentieth century.
With this CD-Rom, the whole collection is now made available in an electronic form to all students of China. With its search engine, it is now possible to enter deeper into 45 years of a complex and rich history.
Supported and produced by members of the Society of Jesus, China News Analysis expresses the Jesuits‘ concern for the evolution and changes of Chinese society, the witness not of a spectator but of responsible observers. The Socio-Cultural Research Center of Fujen University has produced this CD-Rom so that the passionate interest in China combined with the pursuit of scholarly research which was the goal of the successive editors of China News Analysis may now be shared by all.
