V. Project Achievement of the First Stage

“The Project Collection Guide to the First Stage of the Silk Road Book Project ‘the Project of Writing on China by Foreigners’” has received active responses from all circles of the society home and abroad on its issuing. The secretariat has concluded 72 topics and 121 books (including multilingual versions) in 19 languages  written by sinologists, translators, professors, political professionals, full-time writers, publishers, editors, doctors, journalists and sport players from 65 Chinese and overseas institutions and 7 sinologists and writer members, covering the fields of Chinese philosophy, politics, economy, culture, literature, art and so on; and a topic database of the first stage of “the Project of Writing on China by Foreigners” is thus created. We’ve organized experts to read the 72 topics closely and tick the voting card, and selected 38 China-related books with international bestseller and permanent-seller potential which profoundly introduce China and are suitable for publishing overseas. The Project will provide remuneration and publishing subsidy for these books.

You guys are funny. You invite people to write, but if they write what you don't like, then you get mad at them.

I used to think about writing on China, but after learning about the Chinese mob, I'd rather not get involved. It's like, oh well, do other things. Forget China. In the past, I even bought some books on China, just to learn more about it. But the more I learned, it was like, oh oh, better not get involved.

If you don't understand China, why write about China?
