 ABOUT THE TITLE
Hu Shih (1891-1962), alias Shizhi, was a native of Jixi, Anhui Province. He spent his early years studying in the United States, first at Cornell University and then at Columbia University where he obtained his PhD under John Dewey. Upon returning to China in 1917, he worked as professor, head of English Department, and dean of the Faculty of Liberal Arts at Peking University. In 1938, he was appointed Chinese ambassador to the United States by the Nationalist Government. In 1946, he was appointed the chancellor of Peking University. He was dean of Taiwan Academia Sinica in his late years. Hu Shih's publications were compiled into Hu Shih Wen Cun (A Collection of Writings by Hu Shih). Today, Hu is widely recognized as the most influential scholar in the history of modern Chinese academic thought. He was a leading advocate for vernacular Chinese writings and poetry, Hong Lou Meng (Dream of the Red Chamber) studies, and the investigation of Chinese cultural and literary heritage.

The Diary and Letters of Dr. Hu Shih (Peking University Library Collection) contains Hu Shih's diary from his Chengzhong School days, an incomplete diary entry of Hsu Chi-Mo (Xu Zhimo) copied by Hu Shih, 116 Chinese letters, and 141 English letters. Among these, Hu Shih's diary at Chengzhong School is his earliest one discovered so far, dating back to 1906, a time when he started to receive modern education and encounter modern thoughts. Considering that most of Hu Shih's letters have already been published, the letters included in this book are even more valuable. Apart from the letters written by Hu Shih and his family members, this book also includes letters written by famous scholars and important figures at that time, such as Jiang Menglin and Fu Sinian. The English letters were mostly from the years when he was ambassador to the United States, which, from another angle, tell us something about his communication with western scholars and his strenuous effort to support China's war against Japan.

KEY FEATURES
- Contains rare letters and diary by Hu Shih, never before published.

- Each document is presented in facsimile, with English captions.

- Hu's English letters during his US ambassadorship (1938 1942) offer important insights into the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II.

- The early diary gives a window on the world of Hu's formative years.

- Hu's correspondences regarding Chang Shi Ji offer new material for the study of his significant contribution to modern Chinese poetry.

- Contains many correspondences with important figures and scholars of the time.
