Title

China Monthly Review

Subject

A collection of five issues from The China Monthly Review published between January 1952 - July 1953.

Description

The China Monthly review, edited by American, Shanghai-dwelling journalist, John William Powell, was produced from the end of World War Two in 1945, until the firm ran low on funding in July 1953. The periodical had original been 'The China Weekly Review', but issues of limited financial support it became 'The China Monthly Review', and eventually in June 1953 Powell reported that the following month's would be the final issue. The bulk of the Journal's readership were situated in the US.

In the final issue, Powell summarised what he believed to be the purpose of the journal:

'We are especially glad that we managed to stay around long enough to see the Chinese people put an end to the old state of disorder and start building a new life for themselves. It has been one of the great periods of history and we were particularly fortunate to have been able to witness it at such close range.'

The Review was the last Western-operated contemporary publication in China.
