Inaugural Edition of ALP Chinese Imprint

Shanghai Jiaotong University Press has published a new Chinese-language translation of Harriet Jacobs

In October 2015 the Shanghai Jiaotong University Press published a new Chinese-language translation of Harriet Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.  Shi Penglu (Xi'an Jiaotong University) did the translation, and with Joe Lockard co-authored the introduction and a cross-cultural teaching guide.  The first pages of this new book are located here.

This is the inaugural number of an Antislavery Literature Project book series in Chinese.  Further translations are in progress and will be forthcoming from Yeeyang Press. -- JL
