Nation's 40 publishing houses display 2,300 titles at prestigious London event
More than 2,300 titles from over 40 Chinese publishing houses have come to this year's London Book Fair, which ended on Thursday.
It is the first time since the pandemic that Chinese publishing delegations have come to the world's premier publishing event, which saw participation from more than 1,700 publishing companies and agencies from 60 countries in the exhibition hall of Olympia London this year.
Chinese publishing companies, including China Publishing Group, China International Communications Group, and Jiangsu Phoenix Publishing &Media Group, held some 30 activities during the three-day fair.
The Chinese version of British scholar Martin Albrow's China and the Shared Human Future: Exploring Common Values and Goals was launched at the fair. The English version of the book, which was first published last year, now has a revised edition.
Albrow is a renowned globalization theorist and a fellow of the British Academy of Social Sciences.
The book is a compilation of Albrow's academic papers and writings, lectures, and speeches at academic and public conferences and media for over a decade since he started to pay much attention to the issue of global governance and China.
It is an extension of his 2018 book, China's Role in the Shared Common Future: Towards Theory for Global Leadership, which focuses on globalization as well as his explorations on China's readiness to play a bigger role in global affairs.
It offers insights into how China is trying to shape a global society, enabling readers to grasp the author's thoughts and opinions in the context of China in a global setting, both in theory and on practical themes, such as fighting COVID-19, the Belt and Road Initiative and China's poverty alleviation measures, according to the book's publisher Global Century Press.
