Bibliography of Chinese intellectuals in English

nfcz201212This bibliography tries to provide a relatively complete list of translations into English and also includes a few anthologies in French and German (as the choice of essays may be useful even to those who don’t read the language). It is still tentative and any additions or suggestions are welcomed by email.

I have used the following criteria:
– non-fiction writing,
– by Chinese language academics, writers or artists,
– who are active in the public debate about issues of general interest in mainland China,
– mainly post-1989 with a few forays into the late 1980s.

Part 1 lists by author monographs (in bold) and single articles published either in journals or in multiple-author anthologies.
Part 2 lists by editor the main anthologies with their tables of contents.

Main web resources:
– “Fifty influential public intellectuals,” edited by Nicolai Volland, Heidelberg University, 2006.
– “Key Intellectuals,” edited by Geremie Barmé, The China Story.
– “Reading and Writing the Chinese Dream,” edited by Timothy Cheek, Joshua Fogel, David Ownby, UBC.
–  China Change maintains a useful list of Authors translated.
–  Various journals regularly publish translations of essays by Chinese intellectuals: New Left Review, China Perspectives, Renditions, Journal of Contemporary Chinese Thought.
– Various news or advocacy websites also publish essays by Chinese intellectuals: China Digital Times, China File
