Susan Mann Jones University of Chicav,u • • CONFERENCE ~NATIONALIST CHINA ~THE SINO-JAPANESE WAR, 1937-1945 On April 30-May 2, 1976, a conference on wartime China waa convened at the University of Illinois. It was aponsored jointly by the Center of Asian Studies, St. John's University, and the Center for Aoian Studies, the University of Illinois. The meetings were particularly lively because the background, experienc~, and views of the participants varied greatly. Some participants, for example, had oerved Jn prominent positions in the Nationalist' govel"nment- during the war, while others were academic historians who based their writings largely on research in written materialo. The sessions sometimes, therefore, took on the aspect of a meeting between historical actors and their historians. No consensus on interpretations of the events of the war emerged from the sessions, nor was that the intent of the conference. Participants did agreea however, that the exchanges had been stimulating and fruitful. Proceedings of the conference will probably be published in the near future.
