From Michel Hockx: We are pleased to announce the launch of the JOURNAL OF THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION FOR CHINESE STUDIES (JBACS), the new official journal of the British Association for Chinese Studies (BACS).

This is a peer-reviewed e-journal publishing original and innovative research in the multidisciplinary field of Chinese Studies, with articles in a wide range of subject areas ­ history, economics, politics, society, archaeology, language, literature, philosophy, culture, gender, international relations and law ­ relating to modern and pre-modern China.

Volume 1 (December 2011) is available via the BACS website:

The Sino-French Connection and World War One, by Paul Bailey

'In Memory of Norman Bethune': Two Resurrections of the'Spirit of Selflessness' in Maoist China, by Christos Lynteris

All research articles in this journal undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymous double-blind refereeing by two referees.
