Connect to Resource

The series collects the epochal democracy magazines of public opinion forums published in Taiwan and Hong Kong from 1949 to 2010. It aims to digitize and represent anew these masterpieces that are landmarks of different generations but are vanishing from paper collections of libraries, so to review the grace of those opinion leaders’ thoughts in that era, and encourage alive people to learn from predecessors’ wisdom. The selection principles: (1) The magazine once initiated some valuable social climates and enlightened people in their generation, such as “ Wenxing Magazine”; (2) The magazine’s authors are all renowned sinologists or well-known writers of social sciences whose works always introduce/lead new thought trends, worth of being studied well but have never been collected completely for digitization, such as “Con-Temporary Monthly“. (3) The magazine possesses either or both features as above, but was published in Hong Kong, however its founder/authors have deep connections with Taiwan on ideology, political position, etc., such as Hsu Fu-kuan’s “ Democratic Review“, Li Yi’s “The Nineties”. (4) To include various ideologies, such as Chinese unification, Taiwan independence, and liberal schools, etc..
