The US-China Review (USCR) is the official publication of the US-China Peoples Friendship Association (USCPFA). Its predecessor, New China, was created by USCPFA-New York in 1973 and sold by subscription. When New China discontinued publication in 1979, the USCR was already in existence as a broadside newsletter. After New China’s demise, it was upgraded to magazine form.
This index covers the years from 1981 through 2012, Volumes V-XXXVI. It does not include letters to the editor, Newsbriefs or that section’s successor China Currents, Travel Notes or resource listings. Exceptions have been made for longer Travel Notes pieces. Over the years under different editors, formatting for titles of articles (use of capital letters and punctuation, for example) has changed. The index reflects these changes except in cases where punctuation has been modified for clarification.
Volumes V-XIV spanned the 1980s. Six issues were published each year until 1987. Between that year and 1989, changes were made in the production schedule. First, in 1987 the National Board reduced the number of issues to five; thus there is no Volume XI, #6. Then in 1988 and 1989 only two issues were published each year: #1 and #2 in Volume XII and #1 and #2 in Volume XIII.
During the 1990s four issues appeared each year in Volumes XV-XXIII, a schedule maintained until the present. From 2000 to 2012, four issues continued to appear, Volumes XXIV-XXXVI. Beginning in 2013, USCR editors will be responsible for adding articles from their issues.
It should be noted that Yale University houses a complete run of the USCR. The index in their collection will be updated each year.
Several people contributed much-needed assistance during the preparation of the index. Barbara Cobb, USCR Coordinator; Marci Duryea, USCR Production Coordinator; Richard Pendleton, USCPFA-New England; Douglas Reynolds, Co-president, USCPFA-Atlanta; Bart Trescott, USCPFA-Carbondale; and Kitty Trescott, USCPFA-Carbondale and Director of the Center for Teaching about China—all provided information and advice, and loaned back issues of the USCR. Any mistakes or erroneous judgment calls are the compiler’s alone. - Sylvia Krebs
