English IntroductionThe book series expanded further as the ‘Global China Book Series’, to be edited by leading scholars in each topic. Although Professor Zheng Hangsheng sadly passed away suddenly in November 2014, all the book series, described below, will nevertheless be published in English and Chinese from 2015 by Global China Press.
1. Chinese Concepts – This consists of two parts: native Chinese concepts and other concepts seen from a Chinese perspective. For the latter, every concept is required to have a review section on studies of non-Chinese society in order to form a contrast with the Chinese perspective.
2.Chinese Discourse – Based on Chinese social scientific material and systematic documentation of Chinese usage patterns and methodological innovations, this book series will focus on society, culture, social interaction, communication, etc., from sociolinguistic, comparative and functionalist perspectives, discourse and conversation analysis, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics and typological studies. It will explore interactive mechanisms between Chinese discourse and global discourse.
3.Chinese Academy – This series will conduct a comprehensive review, within a global framework, of Chinese academic achievements at home and abroad over a hundred years since the foundation of the Republic of China. It will be divided into three series: disciplines (social sciences, natural sciences, humanities); countries and regions; and interdisciplinary research themes (e.g. 20 topics from the Journal of China in Comparative Perspective).
4.Chinese Thoughts – Each of the books will focus on a topic that non-Chinese social scientists or scholars have not covered, in order to present a contrast between Chinese and non-Chinese thinking in relevant areas
