Book review content:

In the seventeenth year of Chongzhen, the first year of Yongchang, the first year of Shunzhi, the thousand years of the Western calendar, Li Zicheng broke through Beijing, and Si Zong died in the coal hill. The Qing army broke the king in Shanhaiguan, took the victory of Nanmu, set Ding Beijing, and swept through Hebei. Next year, the Ming Dynasty Emperor Zongfu Fuwang Zhu Youzhen, Nandu Jinling called the emperor, the year number Hongguang. Since Hongguang Licha, south of the Yangtze River, there have been Tang Wangjian No. Longwu, Guiwang Jianhao Yongli, Lu Wang self-proclaimed the country, Zheng Chenggong started the sea, things are more than 10,000 miles, decades before and after, against Manchuria, seeking recovery History is called the Nanming era.

The Ming and Qing Dynasties are a great change in the past, and the Nanming story is a history of chaos in China. The speaker squatted at the University of Illinois to study, and read the history of the school's old collection of Nanming. He felt the change of the world, but he was in doubt about the story of the death of the so-called "loyal loyalists" and "national heroes". So I found my own way of thinking. I climbed the history of the Ming Dynasty in the Qing Dynasty. The Qing Dynasty’s admonition to Nanming’s admonition and reflection was behind the persuasion. At that time, the international concept, the revolutionary theory, and the conflicts between the Yi and the Xia were quite rewarding. The variation of the national spirit of the husband is more likely to be the sigh of the past and the present.

The speaker's research is crude, the materials are limited, and the stories and reflections of the stories are not meaningful. Therefore, they dare to take the liberty and share them with the monarchs. The Nanming history books are noisy and noisy, and the recent works are rare. The literary words are impressive, and they are not ignorant. I would like to introduce them to the princes.

Recommended titles:

"小腆纪年》, [清] 徐鼐著

Chronicles of Nanming history, twenty volumes. Qing Dynasty Xu Wei integrated Nanming historical materials, completed this book on the occasion of Daoguang and Xianfeng. "Little 腆" is the meaning of Xiao Guoyu. Although this book has been avoided in the history of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, it is clear that the style is clear, the head and tail are complete, and the cut is smooth and readable. It can be used as an introductory reading for Nanming History.

"The South of the Ming Dynasty", [Qing]

Sixteen volumes. In the early Qing Dynasty, the Qing Dynasty Ji Qiqi collected the historical materials of the Ming Dynasty and personally visited the old remains. In the Kangxi period, he compiled the "The Northern Season of the Ming Dynasty" and "The South of the Ming Dynasty". The book preserves a lot of original materials, but it is also a personal history. It is also a good historical reading.
"Luhan Jiwen", [Qing] Wu Weiye

Three volumes. In the early Qing Dynasty, Wu Weiye was born, and there was a sister article, "Ji Jilue", which was recorded in the end of the Ming Dynasty. There are many rumors of false statements, but the length is short, the text is readable, and it is often quoted for his book. Both books are recommended.
"Han Ming History", Qian Haiyue

Ji Chuan body Nan Ming history, one hundred and twenty volumes. Recently, Qian Haiyue has accumulated information since the 1920s, with a traditional genius of 3.4 million words. The book system is lacking, but the cited materials are extensive, and the character biography is very helpful.

"Zhuzi China" / "Imaginary Alien", Ge Zhaoguang

Professor Ge Zhaoguang of Fudan University. In recent years, Ge's study of the history of international exchanges in East Asia, using Japanese and Korean historical materials, re-explored the Chinese people's understanding of international relations in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and became the second book of "Zaizi China" and "Imaginary Alien". The two books can be read together and are quite inspiring.
