The history of modern Chinese literati cum political commentators presumably ranged from Wang Tao's Universal Circulating Herald in Hong Kong in 1874, till Chu Anping's relentless criticisms towards the ruling Kuomington (Chinese Nationalist Party) in Guancha (The Observer) semimonthly which had been banned in 1948. While Wang desires for a newspaper editor's responsibility could be corresponded to a minister in power, Chu shares the same vision and mission that therefore poignantly criticizes China under Kuomington as an awful mess. This invented tradition with newly imported journalism from the west lasts out at least for seventy five years. This is also a marathon relayed by Chinese intellectuals inherited from Confucianism to seek for Liberalism, which is manifested evidentially by the prosperous press market since the early years of Republic of China. The publication of this collection contributes to the emerging scholarly field distinctively. The present essay would review it thoroughly and chronically in terms of major themes and time periods.
