The History of Harbin in the Mirror of the Official City GazetteerHarbins historie set i den officielle "gazetteers" spejl
This article examines the evolution of gazetteer [a peculiar Chinese genre of officially supervised local history writing] work in the Northeastern city of Harbin. It is a study of the interaction of politics, bureaucracy, and historical work at the local level in contemporary China, and it points to a continued and uncallengened command of the Party-State in this field.
