A database of previously-published English translations of official edicts and memorials from nineteenth century China's Qing dynasty, spanning from the Macartney Mission in 1793 to the abdication of the last emperor in 1912. The Peking Gazette provides insight into the Manchu state and its subjects as they grappled with imperial decline, re-engaged with the wider world, and began mapping the path to China's contemporary rise. Contains the voices of Manchu emperors, Han officials, gentry leaders, and peasant spokesmen as they discussed and debated the most important political, social, and cultural movements, trends, and events of their day, and provides insight into the policies and attitudes of the emperors, the ideas and perspectives of the officials, and the mentality and worldviews of the Han, Mongol, Manchu, Muslim, and Tibetan subjects of the Great Qing Empire.

With approximately 7,000 titles (100,000 volumes) presented to date, CCG is perhaps the richest single resource available for researching China in multiple aspects, including its political history, literature, and religion, as well as the biographies of famous personages, its culture, economic development and, of course, its geography and natural history.

  • Missionary, sinology, and literary periodicals (1817-1949)
  • Records of the Maritime Customs Service of China, 1854-1949
Missionary, sinology, and literary periodicals: A collection of 17 English-language periodicals published in, or about, China during a period of over 130 years, extending from 1817 until 1949 when the People's Republic of China was founded. This corresponds to the periods of the late Qing Dynasty and the Republican Era (1911-1949), when China experienced radical and often traumatic transformations from an inward-looking imperial dynasty into a globally engaged republic with modern approaches to politics, literature, education, public morality, and intellectual life.
Records of the Maritime Customs Service of China: This collection provides primary source material for the study of China and its relations with the West in the late Qing and Republican periods. The records in this collection, including official correspondence, dispatches, reports, memoranda, and private and confidential letters, offer evidence of Chinese life, the economy and politics through the Taiping Rebellion, the Boxer Rebellion, the Revolution of 1911, the May 30 Movement, the two Sino-Japanese Wars, and the Chinese Civil War.

Pishu, which literally means "cover-books," are high-value analytical reports intended to guide policymaking in the People's Republic of China. Pishu are published by the prestigious Social Sciences Academic Press, a branch of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. These reports feature exclusive research and analysis by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and authors from similar institutions, and present objective analysis versus official government messaging on strategic issues. They may be considered somewhat analagous to United States Congressional Research Service reports and analysis reports published by the RAND Corporation.
