Miland Brown has the latest edition of the Asian History Carnival up at his World History Blog, and it’s a very nice collection.
We’re still looking for hosts for August and beyond, however: time to step up and make your mark in the historical blogosphere!
A few non-blog items of note:
- A multi-book review, featuring Sun’s book on the Long March and a book I really want to read on the Great Wall. Also several interesting works on China’s rising power, for which FrontPageMag seems to blame Chalmers Johnson
- DNA tests show Qin-era foreign worker suggesting that, among other things, our tendency to assume that people without frequent flyer numbers tended to remain in one place is deeply flawed….
- Pearl Buck’s reputation is rising, in China and in the US. Never underestimate the power of humanistic literature!
