UC San Diego librarian and Subject Specialist for Chinese Studies, Xi Chen, wrote the preface for Professor Paul Pickowicz’s (UCSD History Dept.) new book titled A Sensational Encounter with High Socialist China. Published in October 2019 by City University of Hong Kong Press, this book incorporates around 100 photos from our Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars Digital Collection.

In the preface, Chen highlights the UC San Diego Library‘s role in contributing to this book project and several other library collections related to Prof Pickowicz’s research works. Huge thanks to UC San Diego Library colleagues (Cristela Garcia-Spitz, Rachel Lieu, Kirk Wang, Ryan Johnson, and Shi Deng) in the Digital Library Development Program and Metadata Services for making Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars (CCAS) collection live and known to scholars in the U.S. and around the world!
