Contemporary Chinese Historical Records is compiled independently by Huang Heqing, a Chinese writer and scholar who has lived in exile in Spain since 1989. It adopts the categories’ system of Historical Records by Sima Qian and divides the book into biographies, movements, tables, etc. The Book records in details more than one thousand of the historical events and persons in China (including Taiwan, Hong Kong and oversea Chinese communities) from 1949 to 2009, and the author gives his personal brilliantly concise comments and evaluations. His particular outlook of the history is a sharp contrast to the official historical books so far published and is more objective, comprehensive and authentic. It is an important reference book that all libraries, research institutions or scholars of Chinese studies in the world should reserve.
