Online Resources--In English
Primary Sources on China--In English
If you're seeking primary source material on China in English, take a look at China: Culture and Society, a digitized version of the pamphlets held in the Charles W. Wason Collection on East Asia housed in the Carl A. Kroch Library of Cornell University. Mostly in English and published between c. 1750 and 1929, these rare pamphlets form part of one of the deepest and most extensive collections of literature on China and the Chinese in the Western world and constitute a rich resource for scholars and teachers in numerous disciplines. China: Trade, Politics and Culture: 1793-1980 also contains many English-language sources relating to China and the West, as does Archives Unbound.
Foreign Office Files for China makes available all British Foreign Office files dealing with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan between 1919 and 1980.
