Wang Jingwei & Modern China

Wang Jingwei & Modern China

  • The six-volume series Wang Jingwei & Modern China is produced by the Wang Jingwei Irrevocable Trust, a non-profit educational trust based in New York. It wishes to further the understanding of the life and ideas of Wang Jingwei — one of the most controversial and complex political figures in modern Chinese history — using his own words, those of his associates, and factual events.

    All the primary source material gathered in this series was collected, organized and preserved by Ho Mang Hang, who founded the Wang Jingwei Irrevocable Trust in 2010, with the mission to safeguard and present original writings, historical materials, calligraphy, artworks and private artifacts created by, or for, Wang Jingwei, and his associates.

  • Since the 1980s, aside from organizing his own collection of archival material and relics of Wang Jingwei and Chen Bijun, Ho Mang Hang photocopied archival material collected by Wang Jingwei’s associates as reference for future scholars. He also compiled Wang Jingwei’s published works into volumes and donated them to major libraries around the world, and shared his personal experiences and helped serious scholars with their Wang Jingwei research. What’s more, Ho deciphered and hand-copied Wang’s handwriting so we could read it more easily. He also annotated Wang Jingwei’s poetry and made recordings to help answer scholars’ questions. This has made our series Wang Jingwei & Modern China possible today.
