The China Channel is entering its second year with a reminder of our top posts
The Los Angeles Review of Books China Channel launched a little under a year ago, on September 25th 2017 – the anniversary of the birth of Lu Xun, whose iconoclasm and cultural interests we celebrated and identified with. Since then, we have published 215 posts, with praise from various quarters and top monthly readers in the tens of thousands. We’re taking September and the beginning of the new school year as our premature anniversary, to announce that we have continued funding from the Henry Luce Foundation, with additional support from the US-China Long Institute at UC Irvine, for another year of operations.
Thank you for reading us, and below are the top ten most read essays on the China Channel from the last year. We look forward to the year ahead, and have some wonderful reviews, essays and more lined up, after a week's break to mark the end of summer.
