Chongqing(1950s-1960s)/Bibliography-General history of Chongqing
Book: Zhou Yong, ed. (2002) General History of Chongqing, volume three, the modern history.
Chongqing: Chongqing Publishing House.
This book is the one I referred to the most during writing the argument texts. This book writes about all social aspects of Chongqing, I read both before and after 1949, to know about both the foundation of industrial clusters, and the social condition of 1950s. This really helped me to analyze how those social factors influence the industrial clusters, and the living quality in those clusters.
However, this book has two shortage. One is that it finishes with 1950s, and doesn’t have information about 1960s. And another is that the book feels to official to me, and it is always praising, but never criticizing. That is the disadvantage of reading this kind of second or third hand information.
