Views from Mount South — A collection of essays
in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the City University of Hong
Kong, will be published in mid-January. The book features 14 Chinese
essays in language, literature, history, philosophy, arts and social studies
all contributed by CityU faculty members and visiting scholars. "The
essays contributed by CityU authors are the most representative works
of their respective areas of study. This publication demonstrates that
although CityU started as a polytechnic 20 years ago, it has built up
over the years a strong humanistic foundation. Drawing from a well-known
metaphor in Chinese poetry, the title of the anthology suggests that the
University and its faculty are devoted to the pursuit of truth,"
says the editor of the book, Professor P K Cheng, Director
of the Chinese Civilisation Centre. The book will be available for sale
in the University bookshop later this month.
