As the Wang Jingwei and Modern China series is being released as individual volumes, we take this opportunity to reflect on the intent behind our publications through an interview conducted by philologist Dr. Liang Jiyong when the series was launched. In this video, filmed in Hong Kong on July 23, 2019, Wang Jingwei’s granddaughter Cindy Ho discussed her feelings and her parents’ emotions as descendants of Wang Jingwei, shedding light on the origins of Wang Jingwei and Modern China.
What brings me comfort is the many people who are willing to understand this complex period of history and decide for themselves. It’s unfortunate, that even today, erroneous information is still widespread, even within academic circles. Apart from feeling regret, I can only continue to publish these primary source materials, and strive to do better. It’s a burden I not only choose to shoulder, but feel blessed to have the opportunity to do so.CINDY HO
