鍾寶賢(與趙雨樂)合編:《香港地區史研究之一──九龍城》

香港:三聯書店,2001年
ISBN 9620419707

本書雖是一本地區史研究,而涉及的範圍則不局限於地區之內。事實上,九龍城的發展對香港(甚至中國)歷史都有著特殊的意義。如何啟、陳伯陶等把「宋帝昺君臨九龍城」的傳說確立成香港正史時,身處邊陲的香港才進一步與中原歷史連繫在一起。在九龍城歷史不斷地被追認與重建的過程中,本地居民的歷史身份才得以慢慢地建立起來。另一方面,綜觀九龍城的發展,從產鹽到防禦、九龍寨城的設置,當地村落、市集、慈善團體樂善堂的興起,以至九龍灣填海工程、啟德濱和啟德機場的相繼完成等,均顯示了九龍城從村落而城市化的種種變遷。 書中內容根據第一手資料考證而成,如九龍街早期繁盛景象的描述,對多年來「啟德」二字來歷種種謬誤的廓清,和九龍城商業興起與當地慈善事業關係的論證等;而〈二次大戰與啟德機場〉一文,更填補了香港航空史上鮮為人知的一頁,相信對讀者了解該區的發展,甚有裨益。書內的百餘幅歷史照片,亦彌足珍貴。

Cindy Yik-yi Chu, The United States and China, 1937-1949: A Survey of a Critical Period

Hong Kong: Modern Chinese History Society of Hong Kong, 2000
ISBN 9628551620

This book is a historical survey of Sino-American relations during the Japanese invasion (1937-1945) and the Chinese civil war (1945-1949). This book provides a vivid account of the dealings between Washington and the Chinese Nationalist Government. Also, it describes America's perception of the Chinese Communist movement. The book focuses on the interactions between the Chinese and the United States administrations, as well as the activities of American diplomats in China. Jiang Jieshi, Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John S. Service and O. Edmund Clubb played an important role in this period. These years were significant in shaping the subsequent course of Sino-American relations, especially with regard to Beijing's policy towards America after 1949. The book will be of great interest to people who want to know more about the origins of the problems of Sino-American relations in the recent decades.

Danny S.L. Paau, Ricardo K.S. Mak (eds.), Sino-German Relations since 1800: Multidisciplinary Explorations 

Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang, 2000
ISBN 3631353243

In this volume containing fifteen papers on Sino-German relations since 1800, David Honey, R.G. Tiedemann and Timothy M.K. Wong examine German missionary work in China as well as Hong Kong. Papers dealing with German colonial administration in China pay attention to the German interaction with locals and other Europeans. Klaus Mühlhahn, for example, reveals that the German governance of the Chinese Qingdao was not a single track action. Winfried Speitkamp studies how Germans preserved their national identity in the British dominated Hong Kong. On German economic activities, Ricardo K.S. Mak examines the relationship between German politics and the German businessmen in nineteenth century Hong Kong. On mutual perceptions, Thomas Fuchs surveys the changing images of China in German literature. Lauren Pfister studies the case of Ernest Faber's "Sinological Orientalism" to reveal how Europeans created images of China which reflected perhaps more of their own frame of mind than the Chinese reality. On philosophical and linguistic interactions Chiu-yee Cheung examines the two different "faces" of Nietzsche in China. Paul Levine suggests possible influence of Buddhism and Daoism on Nietzsche's views on language and translation. Werner Hess shares with us his analysis supported with first-hand observations of the German language in Chinese mainland. Regarding the influence of German political thought, Yik-yi Chu studies Marxism in China; Youwei Xu and Danny Paau both explore the impact of German Fascism on the Chinese. Qichang Pan reviews PRC-Germany diplomatic relations and expresses optimism in continuous friendly relations between the two countries. With the wide span of training, background and places of origin spacing out from East to West, together the scholars present a multi-disciplinary exploration of Sino-German relations in the past two centuries.
