For the benefit of the Greater China cultural sphere, the book series is well worth a read.

CHIP TSAO Columnist, Media Personality

I enjoyed reading Ho Mang Hang’s memoir. It is well written and illuminating. I am fortunate to be able to appreciate it because I am familiar with most of the people in the book.

Unlike other books which are pieced together with “evidence” from various sources, these books use first-hand material. A must-read for those who study modern history!

This collection of historical archives bears witness to how a true believer of nationalism and pacifism navigated through twists and turns in order to rescue the nation during tumultuous times. It is an indispensable material for understanding Wang Jingwei as well as the characteristics of that period in history.

EUGENE W. CHIU Former Dean of College of Arts at Tunghai University
The series provides precious material for studying Wang Jingwei, including a never-before published draft of an autobiography, private letters, political writings, handwritten poetry manuscripts, details about his life, remembrances of his closest associates, etc. Reading the books allows us to further understand Wang’s life philosophy, emotional life, political thought, poetic accomplishments, furthering our appreciation of his true person.

PROFESSOR CHIU KAY TANG Dean, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, Chu Hai College of Higher Education
The greatest significance of this collection is that it allows this historical figure to take his rightful place in history. To have his written works taken seriously, so they can be read and understood enables us to get even closer to history; and to reconstruct the true history. 

PROFESSOR CHEN DEN-WU National Taiwan Normal University, Department of History
From the perspective of academic rigor, this series offers twice the value.

HSU YUMING Associate Professor of History at National Dong Hwa University
No matter how young or old one may be, reading Wang Jingwei & Modern China will be both a mind changing and enjoyable experience.

CHAO CHENG-MING Chairman and President of China Times Publishing, Inc.
Needless to say, this series is of great interest to historians. But even more significant, is that the Wang Jingwei portrayed in the books emerges as not only a politician, but a real-life human with laughter, tears, emotions, interests, and relationships with other people.

DR. LIANG JIYONG Philologist
Indispensable for any student of Wang Jingwei!

DR LEUNG WAI-KEI Manager, Department of Publishing, Joint Publishing (Hong Kong) Company Limited
These six monumental works, with content rarely seen today, are significant to the study of Wang Jingwei. They restore the true Wang Jingwei.
