UMass Dartmouth history professor editing encyclopedia of Chinese history

UMass Dartmouth history professor Dr. Linsun Cheng is responding to the rise of China by editing a groundbreaking multi-volume, multi-dimensional encyclopedia.

"China is getting hot and people want to know something about it," Cheng said of the need for the reference book expected to be released by Berkshire Publishing Group in July 2008. Although other works exist detailing aspects of China, Cheng said this encyclopedia is the first to cover the country's history, culture and life from the ancient past to the present with predictions about the future.
