New Blog: Chinese Economic History

Detail from the Song Dynasty (960 – 1279) painting “Along the River During the Qingming Festival"
A new blog has been established on the topic of Chinese economic history. According to the home page, seeks to provide a bridge between these two isolated academic worlds – that of Chinese economic historians in the Far East, and economists in the West. Everything is conducted in English, and all periods of Chinese history are included. We cover topics of interest, provide commentary and discussion on research, and conduct interviews with prominent Chinese economic historians. 
The site is brand new, but it already contains a useful set of video interviews with economic historians from the World Economic History Congress in Kyoto.
    The site's organizer is Ronald A. Edwards of Tamkang University.
