China: Trade, Politics and Culture, 1793-1980 covers the period of monumental social and political upheaval that ultimately recreated China into a modern power. Sourced from an array of world class archives this digital collection answers the need for clear, intelligible and informative English-language sources relating to China and the West.

Confidential Print Latin America, 1833-1969 is sourced exclusively from The National Archives, UK and comprises the complete run of Confidential Print for Central and South America and the French- and Spanish-speaking Caribbean. Issued by the British Government this series represents a fundamental building block for political, social and economic research.

Everyday Life and Women in America, c1800-1920 is sourced from the Sally Bingham Centre for Women’s History, Duke University and The New York Public Library. This resource is unparalleled for the study of American social, cultural and popular culture during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
