Biographical Dictionary of the People’s Republic of China

This biographical dictionary is an indispensable research tool for information about the prominent persons of the past seven decades in China.

The book documents nearly 600 Chinese individuals who contributed, for better or worse, to the development of Chinese life and culture since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. Though the book is weighted toward political figures, it includes persons in business, the military, academia, medicine, social movements, the arts, entertainment and athletics. In addition to an objective description of the person’s life, an analysis is provided that identifies the individual’s contributions and importance.
