In the Hutong
One of the reasons posts have been rather scanty here of late is that we (okay, “I”) have been resurrecting The Peking Review blog in a new format.
Some of you may know that I’ve got a collection of somewhere around books and book-length works, of which about are in electronic format and around 95% of those are freely available on the web. Apart from the occasional review of books that don’t comfortably fit into Silicon Hutong, I am posting on The Peking Review thumbnail summaries/reviews of up to five of those totally gratis books each day, along with a handy link for you to download them at your leisure.
It is a reasonably eclectic mix, so you may want to check through the categories if you are looking for something specific, or just browse recent posts.
For today’s History Friday, in honor of the re-launch of The Peking Review, I have pulled a few of the works on China’s history for you to check out. (And now that the hard work on The Peking Review is done, I can spend more time here.)
