An interdisciplinary journal devoted to new interpretations, news questions, and new answers to old questions
Modern China, co-edited by Philip Huang (Department of History) and Kathryn Bernhardt (Department of History) is the only Western journal of history and social science devoted to the entire modern period (i.e., from about 1500 to the present) of China. Spanning the full sweep of Chinese studies, Modern China encourages scholarship that crosses over the old "premodern/modern" and "modern / contemporary" divides. In addition to research articles, Modern China presents periodic symposia on important topics in Chinese studies, critical essays on state-of-the-art in Chinese studies, in-depth review articles on particular areas of scholarship, and reviews of books of unusual quality and significance. All substantial articles received are sent out, anonymously, to two referees, one of whom, as a rule, is drawn from the Editorial Board. The only criterion for acceptance for publication is the intrinsic merit of the manuscript itself.
Modern China is based at the Department of History at UCLA and published by Sage Publications.
