Next year is the centennial of the Revolution of 1911. Nie Zhenning, chairman of China Publishing Group, said the mainland publishing industry is eager to issue works by Taiwan scholars related to the revolution. The General Administration of Press and Publication plans to publish 17 books to mark the 100th anniversary of the Revolution of 1911, which took place on October 10 of that year to end the rule of China’s last feudal dynasty, the Qing (1644-1911). The revolution also led to the founding of the Republic of China in 1912 under the governance of the Kuomintang, which currently rules Taiwan. China.org.cn quoted Wang Shuzeng, the mainland writer who wrote an account of the revolution in his book 1911, as saying that only by learning from their ancestors together can they work out a way to future prosperity.
