‘China Quarterly’ Editor Says Cambridge University Press to Restore Articles

by Associated Press

LONDON — The editor of “The China Quarterly” says Cambridge University Press has agreed to restore more than 300 politically sensitive articles that had been removed from the publisher’s website in China at the behest of authorities.

Quarterly editor Tim Pringle told The Associated Press on Monday that the publisher agreed to repost the articles immediately. The action followed a petition circulating among academics calling on the university press to turn down censorship requests from the Chinese government.

Pringle said he was “delighted by the support of the international academic community.”

Cambridge University Press said Friday that it had complied with a request to block certain articles from “The China Quarterly” within China. They touch on politically sensitive subjects, including the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown.

The university press did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
