UM launches new book Series of Centennial History of New Culture in China

The University of Macau (UM) Library held a book launch event on 23 November  to announce the official release of the 14-volume Series of Centennial History of New Culture in China, compiled by Zhu Shoutong, director of UM’s Centre for Chinese History and Culture. According to Billy So, vice rector of UM and director of the Institute of Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences, who is also a famous historian, there are many works on the history of ancient Chinese culture, but few are systematic and large-scale studies of the history of modern Chinese culture, a gap some experts believe this book fills perfectly.
