About the book
The second volume of the Biographical Dictionary is a comprehensive reference work which covers 309 significant women of Chinese descent living both in China and abroad. They were most active in the 20th century and represented all walks of life.
The English edition was published in 2003 by M E Sharpe of York and has since been updated to ensure that the new Chinese edition remains timely. The publication of the Chinese edition by the Sydney University Press is sponsored by the School of Languages and Cultures. The Chinese edition of the Qing volume was published in 2010.
