Part of the China Academic Library book series (CHINALIBR)


In the whole modern history of China the year 1919 certainly deserves the name annus mirabilis. The long series of memorable events beginning with the Fourth of May and ending in the teachers’ strike during the last weeks of the year, are too well known to require mentioning here. But the real miracle of the year seems to be the marked change in the thoughts and ideas of the nation. So rapid indeed has been the spread of the intellectual transformation that it even astounded those who have entertained the wildest expectations for its final triumph.
